Bhairavi Ragam – Exquisite!

February 20, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I never get tired of listening to the composition of “Amba Kamakshi” by Syama Sastri. Set in Bhairavi Raga, the rendition by Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer was the first one I heard. 30 mins long… it nearly brought tears to my eyes.

I got another 10 min rendition by Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar. Simply Exquisite!! Bhagavathar’s style and dedication only make this hearing experience even more out of this world.

If anyone wants to get a very intense but mind relaxing experience of carnatic music, I seriously suggest listening to this Kriti sung by the above two great singers.

The lyrics and other details can be found here.

    on 6th September 2008 i got an opportunity to hear the music concert of Smt. Sowmya.
    She sang Bhairavi as main raga. Really an interesting and heart filling presentation.

    I love this raga and especially this composition. I also heard this once in FM, but I do not have the song, it would be great if you can share both the renditions from Semmangudi and Chembai.

    i was fortunate enuff to get a recording of smt. sowmya of this composition. may i please correct you by saying that amba kamkshi is actually a swarajati by syama sastri although it has the status of a kriti due to the kind of exploration done by the composer in the raga. it is a true master piece
