Tomorrow is Krishna Janmashtmi – the day Krishna was born. What else is better than listening to a composition on Krishna,the embodiment of music – Gaanamoorti? This is a composition of Tyagaraja, in which he also includes the rAga signature at the very beginning.

Next is a composition in tODi. A composition of Muttuswamy Dikshita – although some scholars are of the opinion that it is a mis-attribution. Anyway, I like this composition and so here it is :).

A somewhat rare composition of Muttuswamy Dikshita, in an aptly named rAga called ‘jaganmOhana’ – “the one who mesmerized the whole world”!

A gem of a song in praise of the cowherd flautist who flirts around the girls in Gokula 🙂 A majestic composition of Muttuswamy Dikshita in rAga kuranji.

Here is a song from a Kannada movie ಕೃಷ್ಣನಾ ಕೊಳಲಿನಾ ಕರೆ that describes the effect of Krishna’s flute on the folks of Gokula. Originally from the play – Gokula Nirgamana written by Pu Ti Narasimhachar.

Any musical discussion about Krishna would be incomplete without the song of VyasarAya about the Krishna in Udupi – krishnA nee bEgane bArO!

Bay area is a hub of activities – And more so for the musically inclined.

Next weekend, there is a special Gokulashtami concert coming up by visiting artists Roopa, and Deepa better known as Kasaravalli sisters @Sanatana Dharma Kendra, Sunnyvale.

This would be a good opportunity to go to the temple on an auspicious day, and listen to some very good music.

ಅವಧಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹೀಗಂದರು:

"ಅಲ್ಲಿದೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಮನೆ…ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಬಂದೆ ಸುಮ್ಮನೆ… ಎಂಬ ಘೋಷ ವಾಕ್ಯದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಮಂಡಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡವರು ನೀಲಾಂಜನ. ಅಲ್ಲಿದೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಮನೆ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಪರಿಮಳವನ್ನು ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಹರಡುತ್ತಾ ಇದೆ. ಕನ್ನಡದ ವಚನಗಳು, ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತ ಸುಭಾಷಿತಗಳು ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲೇ ಸಂಗೀತ ಹೀಗೆ ಹಲವು ಲೋಕವನ್ನು ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಪರಿಚಯಿಸಿದೆ." ಅವಧಿ, ಮೇ ೧೫, ೨೦೦೮
