These are the Kamalaamba Navavarana krithis composed by the great vaggeyakara Sri, Muthuswami Dikshithar, in praise of goddess Kamalamba of Tiruvarur. Muthuswami Dikshithar has composed these in the Five Grand Ragas or Carnatic Music such as Todi, Kalyani, Kamboji, Sankarabharanam and Bhairavi. The remaining five songs are composed in rakthi ragas -soul stirring ragas – Sahana, Anandabhairavi, Punnagavarali, Ghanta and Ahiri. The mangalam is composed in Sriragam. These songs were popularised by the great vidwan Sri. D.K.Jayaraman.
