Nick H said, "It is very nice to see your "introduction." Perhaps you would also post it to our New Members thread, as TMK threads here may have a limited audience."
Thank you, Nick H. So here it is:
From yeshprabhu (Yesh Prabhu), a new member.

Hi Sivaramakrishnan,To answer your question and satisfy your curiosity: Sri Muthiah Bhagavathar's shishya, Sangeetha Kalanidi Shree Madurai Mani Iyyer, was the teacher of my Sangeetha Acharya, composer-vocalist-mridangist Shree T N Bala. In Chennai, very few have heard of Shree Bala. That is because he immigrated to the US in the late 1950's and settled in Pennsylvania for more than 60 years. Sri Bala was my Sangeetha acharya for thirty years until he passed away after a long illness. He was a great vocalist and had composed more than 400 krithis on Shree Subhramanya. You can hear him on YouTube: he sang a few of his compositions with no accompanists, and just one tambura. When Sangeetha Kalanidhi Shree Maharajapuram Santhanam came to the US on a concert tour, he visited Sri Bala and requested him to sing a few of his compositions. Bala sang his kriti Vilaiyada idu nerama? in Shanmukhapriya raga. Shree Santhanam liked it so much that he asked Sri Bala to teach him that krithi. When Shree Santanam returned to Chennai, he decided to sing that kriti at his concert, and people loved it very much. And since then they had been asking him, by sending him requests, to sing that krithi at each one of his concerts. That's how it became so very famous. Shree Santhanam's sons Sri Ramachandran and Sri Sreenivasan also sing that krithi in their concerts, and they told me that it has now become their family tradition to sing that krithi at their concerts. The rather unusual views I have about Carnatic music I acquired by talking with Sri Bala who used to tell me what he had heard about Mahaperiyava Shree Chandrashekharendra Saraswathi's views on Carnatic music were. Shree Mani Iyyer revered the Mahaperiyava, and used to tell Bala what the Mahaswami had told him. Even though I have learnt Carnatic vocal for thirty years from Bala, and for four years from Shree Flute Gopalakrishna Iyyer of Kalanikethana, Mangalore, (Sangeetha acharya of Shree Kadri Gopalnath) I am not a professional singer. That's because I have not practiced as much as I should have. I read a lot, and sing very little. I give concerts very rarely; I have given only three concerts at two sabhas in Chennai, so far (at Raga Sudha and Arkay Convention Center). Sri R K Sriramkumar played violin for me at all the three concerts, and Shree Arun Prakash, Shree Guruvayur Dorai and Shree Akshay Ananthapadmanabhan played mridangam at the three concerts. Karnatic music is just my passion and hobby. I will be giving a concert before I return to the US, at the Raga Sudha Hall next month, on May 13, Saturday, at 6.15 pm. I am 73 years old now, and losing my voice slowly, and so I wanted to record a few krithis before I lose my voice completely, so that I could tell myself that there was a time when I, too, used to sing!

Hello everyone! As my id suggests, my name is Vijay Siddharth, and I am 16 years old! I live in Singapore and LOVE Carnatic music. I listen to it obsessively, and love most artists (MLV being my favourite). I am a player of the Keyboard, and I am also a sometime-composer of varnams, thillanas, and krithis. I have also made a few 'innovations' in theory and laya. My other passions include writing (I am preparing to release my first novella, a piece of Historical Fiction, later this year), and eating (lol). I can't wait to meet and learn from all of y'all!

Great to read about members we all know only by screen names. I am new to this forum but a long time listener of CM. My name is Shriram and I am freshly retired from what we today call a cushy IT job. Now I have time to listen to more live concerts and share it with all of you.

Namaskars,

Thank you Admin for approving my membership. I learnt Carnatak music for 7 years. My father was a very good singer although he never learnt himself. He used to hear his sisters taking lessons and learnt all the songs. He even used to sing Western music those days. If he was alive, he would be 102 years.
He used to sing with my Athhes the song " Sringara Lahari" in Neelambari raaga, composed by Shri. Lingaraj Urs.
I would like to learn this song. Could you please let me know if I can get the Swaras for this song please. When I try to sing, I seem to miss the taala beacause I do not have the swaras.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Regards
Jeeja

Hi Rasikas,

We are a household team of software engineers & music enthusiasts. One of us has studied CM intermittently for over 10 years, one of us is a complete novice. We were aware of this forum & were lurking on it for a few months already. It is finally great to become a member of this very knowledgeable community now.

In our naivety, we have started a personal open source project to play solfege notations. We hope to get advice & learn from the community on this project. We shall create a new thread under Innovations topic about this. Even if the project does not work out as expected, we will still have learnt something from the journey.

We are eagerly looking forward to discussions. Thank you for accepting the membership.

With warm regards: Sita & Sai.

Namaskaram and Pranams to everyone,

I am Srisharada from Mumbai. Although my request to join the forum was approved in July 2016, I fell seriously ill and could not participate earlier.
I feel privileged to be a part of this forum and look forward to gain a lot of enrichment of knowledge and insight from everybody here. I learnt carnatic music from 1992 to 1998 but discontinued unfortunately due to asthma. I did intermittently learn but could not maintain continuity. Now since the last 4 years my health has stabilised a little and I have begun learning once again with my guru Smt. Vijaya Krishnamurthy.

Hello. I am a rookie here and posting from north europe. Neither Indian roots nor expertise but I have visited Maharashtra back in 1989. It's a hazy memory now. I brought back a few cassettes of Hindustani music (sitar). I was interested in CD's but I could get only cassettes. I liked the cassette that has live Raga Piloo played by Ravi Shankar and and Ali Akbar Khan. Then timelords began to kick in and I got interested in carnatic music. My Carnatic collection consists of CD's by Nithyasree Mahadevan, Bombay Jayashree, S.Sowmya, Emani Shankara Sastry, S. Balachander and Chittibabu. I have also many Hindustani CD's, most of them are by Shivkumar Sharma and Kishori Amonkar. What should I hear next? I welcome any suggestions. Shivkumar Sharma's Vachaspati is one of my favorites but is it the last word in Vachaspati?

Good Day to All Members
I am Mangesh Mavinkurve and novice to the community and also to singing. I am fond of Poorandar Dasa bhajans. I have been singing albeit I donot know the language. With the help of Google I have got the details and meanings etc.
I am keen to learn the bhajans at 67.
I would like if some one can provide me with the names and contact details would be helpful. Thanks and wait for the response.
I am at present in Toronto, Canada
