I finished recording the Veena Dhanammal versions of kritis that are different from the prevailing versions. Other kritis like Chetasri, Sri Matrubhutam, Sri Rajagopala which are different are available on the net, sung by B-M.

I have given links to all 7 kritis here for easier navigation.

RaviSri, awesome Sri Mahaganati in Gaula. What a marked difference to the usual rendition. The raga bhava shines through every phrase. And the enunciation of vignaraj:, lambodara:, and in the madhyama kala is revealing. You have told me about it, that it is not all 'O' like vignarajO, lambodarO etc. Beautiful. Thanks a lot. Can't stop listening to this original, beautiful, haunting version. I wish others in this forum also react to this song at least. Pity that this great tradition that has brought us the original versions of Trinity kritis is not being understood and appreciated properly

You have sung 'Angarakam' the Navagraha kriti which was different from the usual version and is in vilamba kala. I think you need to record that also. What about Ehi Annapurne?

Here is the Veena Dhanammal version of 'srI mahAgaNapatiravatumAm', gauLa rAgA and in tripuTa tALA sung by Sridhar and myself. In the SSP also it is notated as being in tripuTa tALA.

At last, I got to listen to it today. Well @RaviSri, there is an interesting use of the RGMP phrase in this rendition that does not exist in gaULa today - and it comes right at the opening line itself. There is also a rare usage of P N2 P and MGPM here as well. The rest is more or less like the modern version, but at half speed as you said. The jathiswaram is also then of a more modern addition (I wonder who did it, it's a masterpiece actually).

This tempo is really the "majestic Dikshitar walk" - now all those kampitas can finally get their space.
