#107-N.C.Vasanthakokilam – Old is Gold

NC Vasanthakokilam was born as Kamakshi in Irinjalakkuda,  the present state of  Kerala.

Her voice was melodious with perfect intonation, sruti, emotion, high-pitched and clear pronunciation of words. Her rendering of higher octaves and sruti were remarkably with effortless ease to bring off brigas. She sang plenty of Tamil songs. She was a regular performer at the festivals of the Tamil Isai Sangam in Madras and Nellai Sangeetha Sabha in Thirunelveli.

Here is a set of excellent great old gems of Smt.N.C.Vasanthakokilam.

  1. Tx Ms Mahesh, Mr. Shankar. I am listening to the one NCV song I have (for decades) – Anandha Natanam in Kambhoji – and it suddenly struck me I should listen more of her. Unfortunately the M-fire link says “permission denied” 😦 anything we can do?

    • hello easwar
      Mediafire is blocking most of the downloads in my blog. So I am transferring the files to a paid server. This will take some time as the entire download section is around 50 gb. Pls. bear with us as the reupload will take some more time. Thanks for the visit and please come back again.

  2. Great job. Is it possible to download individual ;songs instead of the whole album.

  3. Thanks for the compilation.

    Are the files available on new server now? I would like to have at least En paLLi kondeer aiya for my mom. Our old LP isn’t playing…
