  1. Hi! I think the lyrics of Achutham Kesavam need to be corrected in the Maa Yasodha stanza..”Sulaathe nahin” instead of “khilaathe nahin”

  2. Madam
    Excellent for your effort and as mentioned by you this is not a “small” attempt. I wish to add that this is a great effort and will be responded not only by kids but also by elders who so far not known these.
    Thanks

  3. Namaskaram mam, Regarding Achyutham Keshavambhajan Stanza “There Sabari Ke Jaise Khilaathe Nahin” needs correction I guess word there should be replaced with BER which means a indian berry fruit.

  5. Mam I am john again,

    thanks mam

    • Practice should be over before 24 hours of the concert. On the day of the concert, just warming up of your vocal muscles is sufficient covering all the octaves. Too much strain for the voice on the day of the event, will make your voice hoarse. The best thing is take a complete voice rest on the day of the concert. I mean to say that you should not even attend telephone calls. ABSOLUTELY SILENT. One more thing dont practice in different sruthis. Stick on to one particular sruthi.

    • It is said that Patnam Subramanya Iyer a great composer and musician had a refractory voice. He used to practice every morning in the early hours in neck deep water to improve his voice quality.

      But the best method is to keep on practicing or singing with a minimum 45 minutes everyday and drinking atleast 8 glasses of water to keep the vocal chords in form.

  6. Mam I am referring to this bhajan…Bhajman Raam Bhajman Raam
    Paandurang Sreerang Bhajman Raam

    Bhajman Govinda Bhajman Mukunda
    Bhajman Ananda Bhajman Raam

    Bhajman Sreedhara Bhajman Bhoothara
    Bhajman Aadhaara Bhajman Raam

    Bhajman Gopaala Bhajman Gokula
    Bhajman Vittala Bhajman Raam

    this is thilang right?

    • Hello Charu

      The song is not in raga Brindavanasaranga. It is raga sAvitri which is a harikAmbhOji (28) janya raga. The scale is
      Aa: S G3 M1 P N2 S
      Av: S N2 P M1 G3 S
      Raga Brindavansaranga has R. The song when played in Veena, gives the above scale and do not have R. Read Brindavanasaranga here.

  7. Hi, My son loves to listen to your bhajans. I am trying to download it, but the download option is not enabled. Can you please help me in this regard.

    Thanks

  8. Namaskaram mam.
    I am 20 years old, but i have keen interest to learn veena and vocal.i have performed in school competions with my mother’s guidance but am not trained. can u guide me with some teachers who could teach me both veena and vocal.
    thank u.

  9. Not many people are teaching both Veena and Vocal together..Kindly search for a Guru near your location..Begin with the vocal, as this is the base. A student learning instrumental music should definitely learn vocal lessons as this helps to improve the knowledge of swarasthanas and raga identification.

  10. anaithum arumai…..thamizile paattu paadi kattrukkola mudiyuma…?nandarai paad sila kurippugal thamizil sollunga anuradha mam….please…..naanoru medai…(mannikkavum muzhumaiyattra) paadagan….
