Rama Navami concert - 24th March, at Sringeri Bharati Vidyashram

It was the auspicious occasion of Sri Rama Navami, the birth of Lord Sri Ramachandra. I performed at Sringeri Bharati Vidyashram, the Sharadambal Temple at T. Nagar for this occasion.
The pieces I sang were:
Jaya Jaya - Nattai (Purandaradasa)
Saraseeruhasana - Nattai
Manavinala kincharadhate - Nalinakanti
Ra Rama - Asaveri
Thamarai Poo Mevum - Saraswati
Brocheva - Khamas
Intha Sowkhya - Kapi
Narahari Deva - Yamunakalyani
Nenana Mein Siyaram - Lalith - Tulsi Bhajan
Sangeeta Rasike - Saranga
Thillana - Maand

This was followed by special darshan and puja, a memorable concert. I was accompanied by B Anantakrishnan on the violin, S. J. Arjun Ganesh on Mridangam and Sundar on Morsing.


  1. Madam,
    Hope you had good and nice concert on Ramanavami Day. I think it is the duty of every Caratic musician to have a concert on these important days Ramanvami(Rama), Panguni Utharam(Muruga)
    Maha Sivarathri(Siva) and Vaikunda Ekadasi(Vishnu) as bakthi and our music go together. Of all the festivals Sri Ramanavami is much more important not only because of Thiyagaraja but also due to the fact that NamAzhwar said  " கற�பார�
    எலà¯�லாமà¯� இராம பிரானà¯� அனà¯�றி கறà¯�பரோ"Â

    Kamban wet one step further and observed பாற�கடல� பூசை
    நகà¯�கà¯� பà¯�கà¯�கென ஆசை பறà¯�றி அறையலà¯�à®±à¯�றேனà¯�Â
    காசில� கொற�றத�த� இராமன� கதை
    Â poosai means cat. just as a cat tried to lick the entire Thirupparkadal I tried this venture of writing this Raama kathai

    with best wishes,
    Jagannathan New York
    P.S Did you render any Kambararaamaayanam poem on that day? like "உலகம� யாவையம�" , or  "வான�
    இன�ற� இழிந�த� வரம�ப�  இகந�த"
    I hope you had rendered one from
    Arunaachala Kavi Â
    If it does not infringe your copy right or intellectual poperty right can I have a list of the songs you rendered? Thanks

  2. We enjoyed your Kucheri yesterday at the Sringeri Matam and appreciated your patience and involvement in the puja that followed your concert for Goddess Sharadha devi.
    Your style of introduction before each song is very nice and a laudable one!
    God bless you with more and more talent in music.
