It is now more than two decades since I started following the progress of MS Sheela as an artist.
And one aspect of her career strikes me very powerfully.Her unswerving adherence to tradition and avoiding treading on the quicksand called Film music.(I remember with so much pain, the brilliant start Sangeetha Katti had in HM only to fritter away...)

In all her forays into devotional music and Light Music (Bhavageethe) , she brings a beautiful touch of classicism .

With this thread I hope that some of our Bangalore Buddies will be encouraged to throw up some concert fare.
I will keep up my end with a choice of short tracks of dasara padas and bhavageethes.

Hope you all find it a pleasant experience

I have listened to her on musicindiaonline http://www.musicindiaonline.com/l/1/m/artist.52/.
her rendition of pakkalanilabadi in kharahaarapriya is really good. she is one artiste who gives her 100% to all the aspects of the rendition. i have attended a concert of her in bangalore gayana samaja last year when she sang an elaborate "entharAni" in harikambhoji, with a really good neraval at "sEshuDu..."

I heard her singing Vandanamu Raghunandana in Sahana on Tele, Shana is one of my Favourite raagas ever since.

Dear Coolkarni-ji,

I was just lamenting the lack of Purandara Dasa representation in the 05 season on the sangeetham portal, and MS Sheela came up for discussion briefly. She has been in my t houghts, and seemingly u divined it :)!

Might u have a complete Purandara Dasa krithi with alapanai and Niraval/Swarams of hers....would be worthwhile. Hope u r enjoying your time in chennai... :)

Happy New Year!

Coolkarni Ji,
An excellent sahana to soothe my mind. Can you post all sahana krithis that you have? I would really appreciate that. Thanks.

She has been neglected by the CM world which has not taken due note of her talents.Endowed with a melodious voice and quite creative in her manodharma singing,she has somehow not recieved her due recognition.
Here is a full concert she gave at the Mylapore Fine Arts in Dec.1999.The exhaustive and beautiful Sankarabaranam krithi lasting 52 minutes is the main item in the concert.

Smt MS Sheela gave a chaste classical concert at the Sydney Music Festival on 7 June 2009. Her main items were Himadrisute (Kalyani) and Pakkala (Kharaharapriya). The Kharaharapriya alapana and kalpana swaram were very nicely done.

Smt MS Sheela is such a gem in person..so humble for such an accomplished musician. Her collection of songs by 'Royal Composers' is wonderful to listen to. My daughter ( who does not consider herself a good singer) was pleasantly surprised to hear encouraging words from her during a class when she visited Birmingham Alabama.
We wish her the best in her musical journey.

Thank you for sharing the song. I enjoyed listening to it. The song in Keervani is one of the songs in M.S.Sheela's mp3 collection of songs Vaaggeya Vaibhava' The glory of Mysore composers' sung by vidwan S.shankar and his disciple Prashanth. This CD is produced by her company Hamsadhwani Creations.
