#1 lyrical variations - sahitya sangatis

Post by ajaysimha »

hi rasikas,
i'm looking for lyrical variations which we can call it as sahitya sangatis
which we come across the krithis in CM world.
which shows mastery over the wordplay by composers.

here are a few examples:

Brochevarevare - sriranjani - adi

P
(1)Brochevarevare - Raghupathe
(2)Brochevarevare - Ninnuvinaa
(3)Brochevarevare - Sri raama Nenaruna
(4)Brochevarevare - Sakala Loka Naayaka
(5)Brochevarevare - Naravara Neesari

aiyan allavō - Dēvamanōhari - Ādi

P
(1)aiyan allavō - naṭamāḍuva (daiyan allavo)
(2)aiyan allavō - kāḷinga naṭamāḍuva (daiyan allavo)
(3)aiyan allavō - ulahuiya kāḷinga naṭamāḍuva (daiyan allavo)
(4)aiyan allavō - naṭamām uru mādhavan āyinum ena (daiyan allavo)

mahāshaya hrdaya - abhogi - adi

madeeyā praṇayānanda geetēna
(1)madhukara champaka vana vihāra - manamōhana madhusoodana navabhooshaṇa
(2)madhukara champaka vana vihāra - nava pallava padakara madana gambheera
(3)madhukara champaka vana vihāra - gōvardhanadhara bhujaga nartana charaṇa

agaṇita mahimādbhuta - Gowḷa - adi
https://youtu.be/lvNaz0R4Oxk
C
(1)namō namastē
(2)namō namastē - puruṣhōttama
(3)namō namastē - nārāyaṇa puruṣhōttama
(4)namō namastē - punarapi punarapi nārāyaṇānanta lōka patē

there are also few example by dikshithar which employs go-puccha yati and srothovaha yati
like sri varalakshmi, thyagaraja yoga vaibhavam, chintaya makanda mula kandam

have any other composers used the lyrical variations or sahitya sangatis ?

couple of days back while practicing music, this thought struck my mind -

even the pillari geethams are modeled in the same way right ?
