Sri Thyagaraja Aradhana - 21.01.2013
« on: January 21, 2014, 10:19:36 AM »
The Aradhana celebrations of "Sri Thyagaraja, one of the three great Karnatic musicians, took place in Tiruvaiyaaru,
this morning. The National Tamizh TV channel (Podigai) did the live telecast,  Many musicians, violinists, drummers and
pipers attended the function.  The function started with abhishekam for the stone idol of Sri Thyagaraja.  Then the
musicians accompanied by instruments sang the five great songs of Sri Thyagaraja, Pancharatna Kirtana.  Many musicians
were new comers.  I could only see O.S. Arun and Sudha Raghunathan among the old stalwarts.

The celebrations were over by 10.30 a.m. with arti for Thyagaraja.   

Arunachala Siva,.
