#21-Analysis of Bhairavi Ata Tala Varnam

Here is a brief analysis of Bhairavi Ata Tala Varnam.  These are taken from the notes handwritten by me. It is a scanned version to avoid the duplicate task of typing..

Bhairavi Ata Tala Varnam

The composer of the Bhairavi Ata Tala Varnam is Pachchimiriyam Adiyappayya who lived in the 18th century.He is the guru of Syama Sasthry, one of the trinities of the Carnatic Music. Adiyappayya is well known for contributing the musical form Tana Varna. For this reason, he is known as the “Tana Varna Margadarsi”. He was also a great Vainika.

#159-Live Recordings of Palakkad Rama Bhagavathar

Palghat Rama Bhagavathar (5th June 1888 – 26th May 1957) was not born great nor was greatness thrust on him.
