Not according to our V Govindan who has truly researched Thyagaraja!

Kamalapthakula appears quite often in Vintage BMKs scheme of things .
In the commercial album with Palladam on Harmonium , in BMK's Kensington Concert
Malladi Bros have sung it a couple of times for AIR


Cool, you are adding one more self taught musician BMK in addition to manakkAl and GS mani. In general this krithi was taken to concerts mostly by self taught musicians. BTW I have not heard gnb,mmi,ssi ,ariyakudi, and also mdr-tiger, musiri and TNS rendering kamalApta kula !!!

Is it possible that since malladi had sung , may be there is one by nedunuri ?

Dear Nageswaran
please check your vol 3 u/l. Some of the files are too small. For example Shanmukapriya plays only for 37 secs and is abruptly cut out. The final Hameer kalyani also is too short. It will be nice if you can correct the files. Thank you immensely and of course with gratitude to Vid|| GS Mani.

cmlover,

Long time no seeing your posts in any of my threads.

The conversion of the tapes to CDs of Sri G.S.Mani was done 15 years ago. Then I was interested in listening to the concert on daily basis [As Mr. Cho said.]. Perhaps the Shanmukapriya information might have been at the end of the tape [of one side and continued in the next side] for a small duration [VOL 2 OF 3 ] which was marked as one track. On seeing the balance of information continued in the next side of the tape, I have joined the whole information and this has been marked as another track and is available in the upload [in VOL 3 OF 3].

G.S Mani is mentioning HamirKalyani and Ahir Bairav in his speech. Only HamirKalyani is marked as one track. I remember Sri Mani had given an excellent Alapana of Ahir Bairav and what the singer should do to differentiate Ahir Bairav and Chakravakam. To crown it all the concert, a very good Mangalam was sung.

Now I have to search the tapes and check up and bring out the missing portions.

Thank you cmlover in pointing out the small irregularities.

I Have already requested you to visit my thread "V.S.Narasimhan, Violinist "[through forum mail ], I have not seen any comments of your post in that thread. In the same way I have sent forum mail to arasi and srkris also. There is some important message to the Rasikas in USA and Canada. Information about musical treasure is waiting for the Rasikas in western countries.

cmlover, arasi, and srkris do visit the thread "V.S.Narasimhan, Violinist"

I bought many cvd's & dvd's of the oldies where the great Papanasam Sivan wrote the music; Jagadalapradhaban starring P.U.Chinnappa & SIVA KAVI starring M.K.Thyagaraja Bhagavathar & S.Rajam(his last appearance in a movie; His wife asked him not to act in movies anymore!). The discussion(by NAGESWARAN & CMLOVER) & the mere mention of the names of G.S.Mani (&S.Rajam) inspired me to carefully watch both movies after 65 years! First time I saw them I was too young & NOW I realise HOW GREAT THEY ARE! Please allow me to share my current EXCITEMENT with you..... I am going to comment ONLY on the music part-written by Sivan- as I do not have the ability, excellence,& knowledge of Sri.Randor Guy except to say thet if allowance is made for advances in Technolgy in the past 70 years these movies are OUTSTANDING to say the least.....
My interest in Carnatic music I HAVE NOW CONCLUDED started when I saw the Tamil movies in which Sivan was responsible for the music. It has been said- I totally agree- that whether one sings for 30 seconds, 3 minutes or 30 minutes the ESSENCE & TOTALITY of the raga & music should be conveyed. Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar was the PRIME EXAMPLE of this & all the musicians of the GOLDEN AGE(1945-1975) tried to emulate him.Sivan's music for films exemplifies this principle & a SAHITYA KARTHA of his stature inspired M.K.Thyagaraja Bhagavathar to write into his contract that SIVAN should compose the music for him to act in the movie! Madurai Mani Iyer(quoting S.Rajam) was the first person who brought out the greatness of Sivan's compositions by making them HIS own!
We should be ETERNALLY grateful & thank M.K.T. & M.M.I. for pointing out the greatness of Sivan to all of us....
THE BEST WAY TO LEARN HOW TO IDENTIFY RAGAS is to just listen to SIVAN'S music for the movies. No wonder the very talented & capable as well as intelligent musician & scholar G.S.Mani has used his music to explain the subtelities of ragas etc......VKV

After Thyagaraja the next greatest/prolific composer is P Sivan. His service to CM and Tamil is unimaginable. Whence he is proudly called 'The Tamil Thyagaraja'!
MMI and DKJ are primarily responsible for bringing his genius to light in the CM world. IIRC GS Mani was closely associated with him on the CM movie songs!
