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

Wish there were elaborate versions of Karubaru and Muripemu

Two Gem of concerts posted by Raju Asokan. Not sure if they were there in sangeethapriya before.

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

A rare number : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l899MCWb1gI

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)

1.SankarAbharaNam :

pannagEndra Sayana padmanAbha muda kAma
sanna mAnasAm mAmava sArasayata lOchana||

2.kAmbhOji
:
manda mArutOpi mama mAnasam vivaSayati
kunda kuDmala radana kOpa mAsu jahimayi ||

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
kOmalAnga vigaLita ghOra tApAkshaNam tadAneem ||

6.suraTi ;
pATala bimba sadruSa pAvana vimalAdhara
hATakOpama vasana hara SObhta kandhara ||

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
bhAvayAmi bhavadeeyApAnga leelam ramAvara ||

8.bhupAlam :
mOdayAmi jagadiSa mOhana kAma kELishu
sAdara mardhayE nAdha sAmaja vara gamana ||

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.
