Looks like MS did not sing swarams for Mukhari. Nevertheless, Mukhari !! :)

Wish there were elaborate versions of Karubaru and Muripemu

Yep. Even if a concert is uploaded there is a 99% chance that it is the same. AIR never broadcasts a new one from the set they have.

DD does not even release any CD/DVD. Two sets released long back and they advertise the same in youtube.

Excellent Tamil Isai 1966 concert! Heard the concert again after a really long break and took two days to finish it. MS must have had a hard time controlling the flow in her voice during the concert. Some rare renderings!

Perhaps cienu can answer this ; I think he uploaded this Youtube.

If I know the date of her trip, I can try to get more details from SriLankan newspapers.

There were two concerts during her Jaffna tour in 1957. Unfortunately no information on the other concert except the RTP Thodi.

Respected Sirs,
Thank you for the information that there were *two* concerts in Sri Lanka during this period. I sure most collectors will know that at least one of them has been released by "Swathi's Sanskriti" (catalogue number SA 751), as a 3 CD set, under the title "The Magic of MS". The venue and date are given as "Sri Ramakrishna Mission, Jaffna, Ceylon 1958". The accompanists are as listed above in the thread (R. K. Venkatarama Shastri - Violin, V. Nagarajan - Mridanga, Umayalpuram Kodhandarama Iyer - Ghatam). The concert begins with Era Naapai, Rama Nannu Brovara etc, and the RTP is in Shanmukhapriya.

Sincerely,
S. K. Bhaskar

M S Subbulakshmi (Private recital at Kalki Gardens, 14th February 1967)
Pannagendra Sayana Sri Padmanabha_Ragamalika (Swathi Thirunal) - Lyrics below


Pannagendra Sayana - Ragamalika (Swathi Thirunal)

O lord Padamanabha that reclines on Adi Sesha the king of serpents, my mind is pining in love for you. O lord with eyes resembling lotus petals, please protect me.Even gentle breeze makes me absent minded. Your teeth are beautiful like jasmine buds. Please don't be angry with me.

3. nilAmbari :

kOkila SukAti manju kujitamapi mE hanta
pAkaSAsana vinuta bhAti ghOra tama mayE||

4.bhairavi :

mAninee jana hasitam mA kuru mAmanyESam
soona sAyaka sadruSa SObhanAnga dayApara ||

Even the melodious cooing of cuckoos tortures me. I am in great distress. You are adored by Indra.Please don't give scope to other maidens to tease me. Your beauty excels that of cupid. I have no other refuge than you.

5.tODi :

yAminee samvESEshu tvAm kAma mavalOkyamim

Your loving gestures in moonlight night are sweet. In my solitude, I derive immense happiness in recollecting that.Your unblemished lips resemble red 'Bimba' fruit. Your attire is golden. You shine beautifully with garlands.

7.nAdanAmakriya :

dEva dEva krupayA mE dEhi bAhu nipeeDanam

O lord of all gods, bestow me with the pleasure of your embrace. O lord of Lakshmi, I recollect your loving sports. O Padmanabha the lord of the Universe, I engross myself in your divine amorous sport. You gait is majestic like that of elephant king. I pray with utmost reverence.

Beautiful....Thank you for posting. Very nicely recorded, and the visuals are lovely.... :)

There are some differences in the lyrics as sung and as provided. I also think there are some 'holes' in the meaning provided.

Eleven Songs in 11 languages.
https://gaana.com/album/11-languages-11-lyrics
The LP record cover shown in the link ( is it right?)
I had this LP long back.
I believe there was a punjabi song there and later left out by the EP record Barathiya Vidya bavan ....

I dont think, it is correct. Any helpful suggestion?
A few months back, Sri.P.Bala questioned my line that there were 11 songs in 11 languages and one among the songs was by Guru Nanak in Punjabi. Just settling the issue here. No offence meant.

Hi All,

Got to know from a friend that the videos of MS singing Sri Mahaganapati in Gowla and Arunachalanatham in Saranga were telecast by DD Podhigai in their MS Centenary special program, 'Kurai Ondrum Illai'. Did one watch them or record them?

It would of great help if some one shares them. I could not really sleep well with the excitement that the videos were broadcast. I searched DD Podhigai's official website and youtube channel. They judiciously uploaded the program videos but most of them were blocked by saregama owing to copyright issues.

Not sure what to do. Can someone help please.

Regards,
Aditya.

Thanks Cienu Sir.

Few observations after an extensive search for this program in youtube, vimeo and DD Podhigai channels.

DD Podhigai - https://www.ddpodhigai.org.in/index.php ... ideo1.html

DD Podhigai Youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5-_zk ... drum+illai

No playlist is available. But when we search, not all are shown but only few episodes are shown in search.

DD Podhigal Vimeo channel - https://vimeo.com/search?q=kurai+ondrum+illai

No playlist is available. But when we search, the search results take 4 pages (10-12 per page), but when we change the page to 2,3,4 - the episodes from page 1 are only shown.

Using the above as source, I am not sure which episodes have the renditions of Gowla and Saranga. I could not sleep at all after I go to know that these were broadcasted that I searched from 11/12 to 3/4 in all the above channels.

DD Podhigal did not upload all the 52+ episodes to any of the above channels.

The ones that are blocked by saregama(you can click in DD Podhigai's Video Gallery, episode #61, #59 and few others, in DD Podhigai's page only, we see the notification that the content is blocked by saregama) are not available in Youtube at all.

Not sure what to do sir.

Doordarshan and AIR have so many video and audio recordings of MS that they can release commercially. So many people will buy them.

AIR Archive PDFs show that she sang Mariveregati, Samkari Sankuru and other songs which we are not MS regulars.

And these videos that Doordarshan has.

We all the fans of MS would appreciate your help in getting these sourced :-)

( she was born in 1916) and one of these 78 rpm records is given in 1928. ( she would have been just 12 at that time!). and the other in early 1930 ( just after 15th year).

Dear Cienu Sir / rasikas members...

I happened to listen a tamil padam by Smt. MSS and Smt. RV on youtube (probably couple of years back) in gaulipantu ragam. The sahityam is something like "Vijaya Dwarakanathanai" ... Is there any recording of this padam that you can share?

Sri Suki Sivam on MS:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH4cgqnmaIY

Few highlights:

1. She did not answer her critics. She invalidated them by her silence and actions.
2. NT Ramarao then chief minister of Andhra , when countless people were waiting, invited in the kalki-family magazine interviewers calling them as MS Amma vITTU patrika people.
3. MGR offered to buy them a house from government funds , but Sri Sadasivam refused.
4. Suki Sivam was renamed Sadasivam in living honor to Sri Sadasivam by his father, who was helped with a transfer out of a a tough situation in Tiruchi AIR to Madras AIR!
