#1 Tillana Desh - caranam in Kannada meaning

Post by ruthmaria » 24 Feb 2019, 16:27

Hi!

I am looking for help with translating the caranam of a Tillana in Desh (adi tala). I don't know the composer but what I've found online so far, it is not one of the more famous ones by LGJ or K.N.Pakkirisami Pillai.

Here are the lyrics for the caranam which should be in Kannada:

nageya kalakala doLu rAga hariye
jagada nUpurava ulisi naliside
madhura danigaLu bhAvadi pADide
ide dEsha-rAga-bhAva sammELana

Here is a link to that piece of the music: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mLiULa ... sp=sharing

If anyone wants to hear the whole song, I can share that, too.

Thanks in advance!

It is in kannaDa language.

kalakala doLu should be one word kalakaladoLu

Please share the full song and any more information on the recording (singer, album and such), if you are able to.

I think I can provide a more meaningful summary if I get to hear the full song.

My try::

nageya kalakaladoLu rAga hariye
jagada nUpurava "olisi" naliside
madhura danigaLu bhAvadi pADide
ide dEsha-rAga-bhAva sammELana

This was a song on national integration aired on Doordarshan in the 90s.
World famous Indian vocalists, instrumentalists, percussionists and dancers performed for this song.
It was a magificient experience to listen and watch.
{Baje sargam,har taraf se gonje bankar desh raag}
The audio is not part of any tillana.

While the tune flowed along with the rippling sounds of laughter,
The anklets of the world were coaxed to rejoice .
Sweet tunes were sung with emotion,
This is the union of the tune,the spirit, of the country.
{this is the union of the tune,the emotion,of desh raag.}

Sreeni avarige::

You may remember this song that was being aired on DD in the 90s.

It was pictured on::

sarvasri Ravishankar, S Balachandar, Lalgudi Jayaraman

Ustad Alla Rakha and Zakir hussain,

BhimsenJoshi,Balamurali Krishna, Shivkumar Sharma,Hariprasad chaurasia,

and other stalwarts.The longer version included Bharatanatyam, Manipuri, mohiniattam

kuchipudi forms of dance,picturised on Yamini Krishanmurty,Sanjukata Panigrahi Bharati Shivaji and others.

It was a beautiful reminder of our culture and music.

Regards.

{Search baje sargam har taraf se, and you can get to watch the video.}

Thank you for the insights so far! Very interesting!

Here is the full song: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1o72vmT ... p=drivesdk

It is from the Ananya CD series of music for Bharatanatyam. Unfortunately, this was one of the few songs that didn't have any info attached at all.

Word to word meaning would also be much appreciated if it's not too much trouble. Thanks again!
