#43-Voice Culture Workshop

Voice is God Gifted – this is a fact. The voice is the only living instrument of music that can also be trained. A person gifted with musical abilities has a naturally gifted voice apparatus and propensities that need to be unlocked, awakened and orchestrated. Being blessed with a “golden, honey-dipped voice” is rare. But even more challenging for musicians is to sustain it as long as one would like to, for reaching out to people with one’s music.

A Master Class on Voice Culture is conducted on 5th Dec, 2021 between 9:30 A.M. – 11:00 A.M, which would aid the students of music to tread towards the direction of somatic singing. Please find the details of the workshop in the brochure given below . Register Now !!. Limited Seats !

#13- An Analysis of Kamakshi Navavarana Krithis

Ooththukkad Venkata Subbaiyer is a shining star in the galaxy of all time great vaggeyakaras. Venkatakavi is a fragrant link who lived between the period of Purandaradasa-Annamacharya and the Trinity, and his date is placed roughly during the period 1700-1765. He was a Naishtika Brahmachari, great personality, a vaggeyakara, a mystic and a Srividya Upasaka who was very much devoted to Lord Krishna. Who can forget his evergreen songs Thaye Yasoda, Alaipayuthe Kanna, Paalvadiyum Mugam..The great Vaggeyakara was the pioneer in composing Navavarana Krtihis on the presiding diety of Kanchipuram, Goddess Kamakshi. Please read to dwell deep into these Krithis.🙏😇
