regarding the lyrics of vacaspati varNam of TIGER.
i posted in the previous page.. but there was a small error
got it corrected on listening to MDR version

vaNdanamu - vachaspati varNam - ATa tALam - TIGER

P: vaNdanamonariNciti vElakoladi
sAshTANgammu mA bhArata lakshmi vANi kin

A: maNdAra dhara pUra arivirim catulu tOshita caritE
mA vara vasaNta mOdini Sri rukmiNiki cirAyu nosagumu

C: aNtamuna kalAkshEtra adhyakshiNi supOshiNi

the change is at the beginning of second line of anupallavi..
it is not (mAra vasaNta) but (mA vara vasaNta)
rest is same.
again corrections, if any, are welcome

Should it not be BArathI (= saraswathI/vANI) and not BAratha in the second line of the pallavI? If I remember correctly, the composer was asking for vANI and lakshmI to continue to shower their blessings on the amazing Rukmini Devi.

rshankar: you may be right. but both (SRJ, MDR) sing as 'bhArata lakshmi vANi kin'
not sure if it should be 'bhArati' or 'bhArata'
those who learnt this varNam should be in a better position to tell/clarify to us.

Thanks Divakar

Meena
You are quite right. coolkarni wanted Divakar to be alerted. We have a proverb in Tamil which goes as "If the mango is ripe is it necessary to send for the flies".

We are lucky to have such resources right with us. That hindolam is superb!

cmlover,
that kriti 'mangaLa caraNE - hindOLam' was completed and corrected with the expert help of Subramanianji.
i feel this is appropriate place to thank him for his patience in 'filling the gaps' and also correcting mistakes

you could post the meaning of the kriti for the benefit of rasikas in the 'mdr's compositions' thread in 'composers'. i already posted the same kriti in that thread.

Finally, I sat down and listened to the varnams uploaded by Davalangi and others.

gAravamu ganna (varNa), rAgAmAlikA, is simply superb - every ragam is sung in the inimitable SRJ style, and Ashwin and Rohan do their teacher pround indeed! Evaremi, in Sahana, is another stellar piece. Avidly listened to every one of them, and feel desperately for the lack of time in learning them all. Davalangi, thank you so much for sharing these gems.

Who has sung Arabhi - started playing it thinking it was being sung be Tiger, and could not believe my ears when the higher sruthy came out of the speakers.

The two Sriranjani varNas, both by MDR, seem to mine ears to be from very different periods - would the uploaders clarify, please?

A request:

Does anyone have a vocal rendering of the Ghanaraga malika Varnam, Inthakopam, by kALahasthy Venkatasamy Raja, in Adi, and The Ata thaala varNam in Poornachandrika - the latter has the grammer of Poornachandrika codified in it? Would you please share here? Many thanks.

BTW, did anyone bother to check out teh Sunadha Vinodhini Varnam sung by Shobah Sekar - it is very well done.

Where would I find a rendering of Tiger's AraBI varNam? Is it on the x-drive? And, on the same note who is the person singing the valachI thillAnA that was u/l on Rapidshare?
THANKS.

Carnatica has released has a double CD set of Ananthalakshmi Sadagopan. Sri CML, would you know why / how we do not hear of this musician anymore - I mean why / how she disappeared from the public platform?

I do have the Sukhanubhava CDs from Carnatica. She was a disciple of Sattur Subramaniam and was also related to VV Satagopan. I have heard her inperson and on the Radio several occassions in the 40's and 50's. She withdrew for health reasons and as I understand is still living in Chennai. It is a great loss for CM :cry:

I do not think so - the Carnatica CD does not have Anname (Arabhi).

Ananthalakshmi Sadagopan - related to V. V. Sadagopan? Talking of VVS, is any of his music available ?

Your listing does not cross with the commercial one. Please let us have that concert. All the songs are tempting and I am sure they were recorded when she was in her prime. In those days she was ranked better than MS for classicism. What a pity fate dealt her a bad hand :cry:

Again if you do have any concert of VVS it will be a divine treat!

Thanks

I have posted this info in a seaparate thread, but in case it got overlooked..

I recall reading a few months back re: release of commercial audio tapes of Sri V. V. Sadagopan. If anyone knows anything about that would they please post that info here? Many thanks.

The elders in my family say that NCV also offered MSS great deal of competetion, and may have eclipsed MS had she lived. A lot of old stories that are burned in the memories of the older generation, and definitely buried in the newspaper morgues.
