There is a version of Nityashree singing nIlOtpalAmbAm in nArirItigowLa on sangeethamshare/sangeethaprita
There is also Sowmya's version in D2 rItigowLa (although labelled as nArirItigowLa)

Arent these guys (sangeethapriya) treading in dangerous waters here? I am sure the latter one is a commercial version! Maybe both :rolleyes: - they need to get things under more control

Yes Arun, I know the nIlOtpalanAyikE versions in S priya are with D2.
I heard D1 versions too. It has a nice effect when the kriti starts with N and goes to D1
I like the veena version of KS the best.
The vocal versions helped me get the sahitya into my head ,D1 or not

Thanks Sripathi & Suji Ram :) BMK's voice is in much better form than in his commercially available recordings of this kriti!

-Ramakriya

Sthitilayadikale in charanam -sung exceeding well! words are more clear with mimimal accompaniment sound/volume.

Suji Ram,

Do you have access to the Veena version of the song?

Hello All,

I am new to this forum. Respectful greetings and salutations to all the fine listeners and musicians present.

A close friend (R Narayanan) has recorded his own alap of Reethi Gowla, at home, on a minirecorder. He is a mano dharma singer, not a professional. The recordings were recently converted to MP3 format.

http://auminfinitecosmoses.com/elements/view/951

I request all to kindly listen and offer your knowledgeable comments about it. I am not a very experienced listener, but I did enjoy these. I felt this is an appropriate place to share. The recordings are not the best quality, but perhaps sufficient for an essential listening.

There are also recordings of other ragas, which you will easily find with a few clicks, starting from here:

http://auminfinitecosmoses.com/categories/view/4

If you wish to, you may post your comments on the site itself (I would encourage that), or share them here with me.

Please accept my apologies, if this unexpected request from a total stranger feels rude or too forthcoming.

Sincerely,

Shyam

Hearing it .I couldn't believe that such low sruti could be stretched for so long. MDR would have been
stunned if he were to listen.

Shri Shankara Naryanan, residing in Nanganallur area(Chennai), too sings like MDR. His voice and sruthi are simlar to MDR.

Thanks immensely, Purist. Narayanan was very happy to hear your comment.

I request you to check Naattai and Thodi too (I know it's off topic, but still)

The following are the excerpts from concert reviews posted by rasikas including myself. One peculiar thing I noticed is, hardly anyone rendering nerval or kalpana swaras in ritigaula though it seems to be season's favorite. Is there any reason for this?

Violin Duet: Lalgudi G.J.R. Krishnan & Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi April 17th
3. nannu viDachi - ritigaula - mischra chApu -Tyagaraga (a)

MSG trio - Bangalore - 01 May 2009
5. janani ninnuvina - misra chapu - reetigowlai - subbaraya sastri (alapana)

Sudha Raghunathan- Fort High School Bangalore 3rd May 2009
... a brief sketch of Ritigowla and the oft repeated Nannu Vidachi.

I have heard artistes sing kalpana swarams for Rithigowla. Singing swaras for Tatwamariya tarama is common. GNB has sung swaram for Raga ratnamalika and Paripalayamam. He is supposed to have sung a RTP in this raga too. MLV, Trichur Ramachandran and Sudha sing swaras for Janani at 'tamasamu'

Quite often Rithigowla (or Anandabhairavi) is not taken as a main piece but rather a slow filling item between the sub-main and main.

Thanks to Coolji I have the SSI Reethi Gowla. One of my all time favorite concerts. SSI / Lalgudi* in that concert is simply the best :) decent recording too. If it is not in Sangeethapriya I will upload it if someone requires.

* Should have been Coolji / SSI / Lalgudi :) Ask a song / raga / neraval / swaram etc etc rendition to Coolji and he will *NEVER* disappoint.

The greatest reetigowlai neraval and swaras (especially )singer is Prof TRS, you must listen to that brilliant rAga ratna malichakE( N S ) and tatvamariya tharamA (S).

Can you merge this thread with parent rAga thread please

Yes please :) !

The GNB RTP I believe was on sangeethapriya.org sometime ago (?) - it isnt a complete one though. There is also a GNB one in Anandabhairavi - superb (bad quality in the beginning, but decent after a while)

I like both MMI's TVS' kalpanaswaras with tatvamaRia. Also SSI's with janani ninnuvina. MDR's slow one with baDalikadhIra.

Is the entire concert on s'priya?
And here's one more vote for the voleti to be uploaded.

Thanks

Here's the SSI rItigowLa:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/we3or0

One of my favourites. My access to Sangeethapriya is very poor these days and there are numerous difficulties in downloading, so I've started uploading the entire SSI-LGJ-TS concert with the famed bhairavi swarajathi. Will update with the link when it's done.

Will try to find other rItigowLas with N/S meanwhile. LGJ has played an excellent dwaithamu in his ranjani-mOhanam RTP concert which I have, but I'm not sure if it's commercial. MDR, of course, breathed life into this ragam.

LGJ's responses are certainly on the money in this clip (and throughout this concert). The entire concert is here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ovy0w5

Svkashyap and other rIthigowLa lovers, here are a few more:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/t9mlqa

This .rar file contains:
(1) MDR MSG PR - nannu viDachi (S)
(2) MDR MC - mama hrudayE (S)
(3) MDR LS VR - baDalikadhIra (R,S)
(4) SSI TNK UKS - janani ninnuvina (R,S)

I also accidentally inserted a Santhanam rendition that I thought had kalpanaswaras but does not. But it's still worth a listen!

Intriguingly, in sifting through my MDR collection, I realised that I do not have a single rIthigowLa by MDR withOUT kalpanaswaras! Even if it's just a brief 2-min spurt at the end, he always sings swaras in the ragam.
