Sriranjani Santhanagopalan, K. Gayathri both gave good recitals for Sivarathri Akhandam @ Arkay and quite a good number of tamizh compositions. Palghat Ramprasad gave another good one. Vidya Kalyanaraman was bit out of form, but later I think during tamizh new year recital she was in good form going by the few initial renditions - me yet to cover the full concert.

Tis thread is about CM songs ( mostly non-film) in tamilzh and Dr.Pasupathy has shared a fine write up by KALKI on a concert by Madurai Mani Iyer in chennai in Thamizh isai changam. The concert was very special in that all the songs were in thamizh from start to finish.
Many of them were by PAPANASAM sIVAN.
It is in tamizh.

KALKI was as we all know, a firm believer in singing classical music in tamizh . in this review, he points out why it is better.

Tamizh rasikas will be much happier with tamizh songs and even though a lot of things CM comes from Ancient Tamil music
tamizh songs alright , tamizh music or tamizh isai alright, it would be better to find out who are these "Tamizh rasikas" in the first place? How many sub categories of them are there? What is each of their heritage actually and how have they received it today and how are they carrying it today, understanding it today and seeing it today. etc.?

People who categorize based on power structures , behavioral sciences , and anthropology especially owe us an answer. Like Telugu was the language of composition, because it was a court language! Was Marathi ever a court language - briefly? But was almost forgotten except in one tukkaDA in a bhajan sequence. Guess what - what is more popular now?

Kalki is the smart one saying the obvious yeah? He forgot about what the songs convey though! Especially after he waxed eloquent on mother tongue and intelligibility!

I’ve been wondering why Sanjay’s all-tamil concert has not been mentioned in this thread. And I’m intrigued that no one has written in with news of his latest announcement:

Happy to announce our sequel to the blockbuster Thamizh classical concert on this World Music Day. Catch me live on December 7 & 8, 2019 at the Music Academy, Chennai

Madam, SRINATH had mentioned about Sanjay , in his opening post itself of this thread.
As you might have observed, Sanjay has made this his USP over the years

For relevance.. would like to link this presentation that I posted in ragams forum under dEvagAndhari

https://youtu.be/PLKxGCBZURI?t=2008

Seems a new treasure un-earthed although it may not be new to insiders.

This particular one provides immense opportunities to bring out the rAgA and emphasize it with the music of the language as it connects back at the end of the tAlA cycle with an atItam, like many a SrI tyAgarAja kritis.

Yes, I saw that. I was specifically mentioning his all-Tamil concert, and I was surprised that since this “sequel” is relatively fresh news, it hasn’t received any mention on Rasikas (afaik), especially à propos of this topic. I was not finding fault.
