Has Shri MMI sung Swara Raga Sudha in Sankarabharanam, in any of his concerts? If so, any chance that there is a recording???

Thanks and Regards
Perarulalan


I dont think there is a recording of MMI singing swara ragha sudha . We have tookiya tiruvadi and endukku peddala . I am curious if shri MMI has sung this krithi

Dear Perarulalan,
Only the following recordings of MMI in Sankarabaranam are available to my best of knowledge. : Sarojadala netri , Endukupedhala , Thookia Thiruvadi and the Navavarna Kriti
Sri Kamalamba . Have I left out any other composition?

Balu Sir,
Thanks a lot for your reply. I was listening to the rendition of Swara Raga Sudha by Smt. MSS. Was wondering if Shri MMI has sung it at all.

madura nEram - மதுர நேரம் - MMI listening session on 26.05.012

dear sangIthaprEmis
The next MMI listening session will be on Saturday 26.05.012 at Krishna Gana Sabha.

The session will start by 5:30pm.

As we are getting closer to the centenary birthday of MMI a full concert running for about 3+ hours will be played. Come prepared to soak in MMI's music and stay soaked!! And there may be some live surprises too!!

As usual don't ask me for the accompanists and the recording of the concert.

Madurai Mani Iyer music is part of many MMI Maddys lives.It was amply proved again on the 26th May 2012 when his concert of Shanmukananda Hall Bomby@Mumbai waselayed LIVE and the fans of the great MAdurai Mani iyer were present well in advance of the schduled time of 5-30 PM.The credit goes to ALL the rasikas and more important to S/'s SL Narasimhan,VIjaykumar and Jayaramakrishnan for their very sincere and dedicated efforts Kudos to the trio for reviving the memories of great and soulful music.The highlight of the evening was the presence of legenday Lalgudi Sri Jayaraman Sir who accompanied MMI along with the late powerful Palghat Mani Iyer on
Mridangam and Sri Kothanda raman on Ghatam.
MADURA MANI concert started with the popular and evergreen NADA THANUMANUSAM and in the native language KUTCHERI
KALAI KATTIYADHU.MMI followed it with Sahasra Kala mandithe
Koluvai Unnade Muthuswami Iyer Krithi and Dharini Telusukunti was
in detail and the team of Lalgudi,PMI and KR Iyer excelled in all aspects of the soulful song.Of course the BEST was YET TO BE and
Sivans KANAKANKODI VENDUAM was taken up and this writer could SEE many of the rasikas were NOT only excited but also a few
became too emotional with JOYOUS tears inn their eyes.As it was very
aptly put on the ADs KETKA KODI KAATHU VENDUM.KAA VAA
and Kandan Karunai songs were on the list and Mathrubutham and the RAGAM THANAM PALLAVI In SHnmugapriya was another hit.Even
at 15 minutes past 9 PM the rasikas numbering 150 or so at that stage
refused to accept the concert was over Such was the magic of MMI team consisting of LALGUDI PMI AND KR IYER<We are all very much indebted to MADURAI MANI 100 organisers in particular to S/S SL NARASIMHAN JRK AND VIJAYAKUMAR FOR THE EVENT>
The MADDYS OF MMI left the venue with Madurai Mani on their lips


The wonderful concert began with Nadha Thanumanusam and the maddys were excited to the extreme and the concert started with a magical touch at once.The audience became very emotional including the writer who rarely missed any nMMI concert in his hay days.

Balummi Sir

I downloaded and listened , tx also to the thillana in sbharanam. IIRC ,In general MMI has sung only two thillanas one in shenjurutti and this one in sbharanam. My assumption is his eppovaruvarO ,kandan karunai,vellai thamarai and note requests may not have given him that much oppurtunity to sing more thillanas . Also the thillana renaissance happened more in 80's and 90's

Dear Rajesh ,
Sometime back I tried to download from my own storage in Mediafire .com just to find out whether rasikas find any difficulty in doing so . I got the reply that the uploader (i.e. me ) had privatized
the storage and it is no longer possible to download without "his" permission !I had never privatized but only changed the password . It is for this reason that I wanted confirmation that you were able to download freely . Thank you . My only aim in life seems to be ( there is no conscious effort) to spread the music of MMI far and wide . When I saw hundreds of faces swaying this way and that way , enjoying His music at Krishna Gana Sabha on 26 th of May listening to MMI thundering through the speakers without anybody on the dias , it was a thrilling experience .

not liking to see Madurai Mani's name getting into the 2nd page of the vidwan's list (need to get back on the 1st page 1st name)....prompting the able lot to start writing about MMI such that novice like me could read and indulge further. During my India (chennai) visit 2 weeks back had mentioned to my Dad (who is a fan(atic) about such forums and existence of fanatics like him as well. He too shared his experiences listening to MMI's concert during his intermediate/college days visiting suchindrum temple and how he and his friends would listen till the end and get back home at 2 AM.

I have tried to upload through a new website the Navagraha kriti Angarakam sung by MMI in a private concert in Kilpauk in 1962 . In this he had elaborated Raga Suruti and had sung beautiful Swaras http://jumbofiles.com/j1369fn338vt/20 - Suruti.mp3.html

MAdurai Mani Iyer Centenary preliminary MEET of the MMI MADDYS was held at the Corner Stone Mini HAll on 2nd October 2012 to further chalk out the programmes for the GRAND FINALE at BVB Mylapore ON SUNDAY 28th OCTOBER 2012 in which a few VERY CLOSE associates will be honoured and of course VKS SIR AND CLEVLAND SUNDARAM SIR will be there to make the function a very grand one.As for as the Corner Stone meeting was concerned it was a cloudy evening in which some 75 strong crowd came and enjoyed MMIs Music and some touching speeches by S/S Naraisah,VKV SAK DURGA SANGITHA KALANIDHI designate Trichur Ramachandran and Sri Kuppusamy nephew of late Guhan the composer of KANDAN KARUNAI which was sung many times by the immortal MMI with his melodious GOLDEN VOICE>Ms.Sahana rendered the prayer song and a fine book containing a few qualitative articles were presented to the audience.KRA Naraisah spoke on the importance of MMI on Gandhi Jayanthi day since MMI was known as GANDHI in his inner circle of friends.MAHATHMA MANI MOZHI VAZHI NADAPPOM A song composed by CHITTI was played on that occassion.VKV threw more light on the event of MMI to be held on 28th October at BVB Mylapore.VKV will also be writing more on MMI 100 in RASIKAS appealing to the RASIKAS to do their BEST in the memory of MMI!

TX FOR THE IMMEDIATE RESPONSE!RAJESH!Sri Surya presented one of the very rare LEC-DEM and it was really very interesting and informative one for LAY rasikas like me.
I left it to the more MUSIC scholarly VKV and SUNDARAM SIR since I have always been an humble RASIKA and I am one like the RIKSHAW MAN at the swelling crowd of the KAPALI KOIL concerts refusing SAVAARI till MMI finished his concert in 1950 and 60s.But one striking point of SURIs observations was that of the SILENCE equal to the song of MMI style.This was discussed earlier on by my dad CHITTI and THI JAnakiraman Sir about MMIs special patterrns.What is the SILENCE as I understood can also be called as the PAUSE during the concert of MMI.For example whenever MMI sang SEETHAPATHE in particular MMI used to be giving an impression that he is SKIIPPING VATHATHMAJA but actually it is the PAUSE in between two lines of the song.MMI had many positive praises for the PAKKA VADHYAM which is the real PAKKKA VAADHYAM in those days of MUSIC!
As for as the LEC-DEM of SURYA I want to honour him with a SMALL BUT SWEET TITLE now.I know SUrya EVEN AS a very young boy since me and his dad Sri Ramachandran were colleagues at RBI CHennai and of course later onn SURI too was my coemployee and still with RBI CHennai now.I suggest SURI can be called MADURAI MINI IYER NOW!
