Some audio samples, and some analysis - but strictly just a rasika's (read amateur) perspective. Please feel free to comment and offer suggestions. If you find any mistakes, apologies in advance - please let me know and I will correct them.

Arun, I just happened to catch this blog. Nicely done. This type of in-place swara prayoga samples works very well to define the key raga characteristic. Pretty much what I had in mind when we were indulging in the swara identification Q&A in the sangeetha kalalaya section a while back. I think you were going to do something like this for Abhogi ( and contrast it with sri ranjani ). Thanks.

Needumurthy niganukoni is a rare kriti by Patnam Subrahmanya Iyer with a chittaswaram.There is the VENKATESA mudra in the anupallavi.So should be PSI kriti.

Catching up late on this thread!

Prashant's query on post # 7: Is there a tillAna in nAta kuranji.

I see Lakshmanji has posted one in post #8.

I have with me a tillAna composed by my Father Veena Raja Rao.

I am working (with a karnAtaka based artiste) on including this in an audio CD that will be released in July 09.

dear rasikas.

Patnam Subramanya Iyer's majestic song 'Needu murtini kanugoni nemmadini sevimpa dhanyuda naithini'
in natakuranji is fantastic song. Chitteswaram is also great.

Sreeni,
Thanks for your father's lovely composition, Nagamani S singing it. Has he composed more tillAnAs? Anoor's playing very good too. Wonder if your daughter has danced to any of them...:)

Prashant had to wait, but not until 2016. We are still in 2015 :)

Arasi avare,

Thanks for your note! I was in a rush and rushed to 2016 when I posted that tillAna in nAtakuranji!

My father has composed 3 tillAnas. Besides the nAtakuranji tillAna above, he has composed one in kamAch and one in kalyANi.

I have uploaded the kamAch tillAna under Raga and Alapana section today (opened a thread for kamAch)
http://www.rasikas.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26110

I need to work on bringing out a recording of the kalyANi tillAna in the near future!

My daughter has not danced to any of my Father's tillAnas, yet. However, She has danced to other compositions of my Father in ABhogi, hindoLa, nATa and saraswati.

(Sorry about the digression from nAtakuranji in this thread!)

Posting this in this thread as well so that it's indexed in the correct thread for the rAga

I am sharing here a recording that I have found to be unique, in the sense that I have not heard any other artiste performing this tAna varNa.

I urged my sister Smt Veena Kinhal to perform this varNa again in a concert, after a long gap (of 41 years, if I am right!)
