Overview

Naadabrahma Shri Thyagaraja Swamy was a devotee of lord Rama.

His music pieces give a deeper and philosophical meaning of our existence on earth. His life revolved around three aspects - spirituality, music,and godliness, which saw a perfect synchronization of these three characteristics. 

This course consists of three kritis by Saint Thyagaraja. His compositions are unique, filled with devotion. These compositions give us infinite possibilities for imaginative music ( manodharma sangeetham ) because of the raga bhava inherent in his compositions.

Learning these kritis will help students increase their repertoire in raga alapan,kalpana swara and niraval.
