Pada Varnams - Vocal and Violin Recitals

Charukesi, Nilambari, Shanmukhapriya and Navarasa (Ragamailka)

Lalgudi once said "I am nothing without music. Even in all my future births, I want to be born only as a musician. Music has not merely been my livelihood but also my path to spirituality. If God granted me a wish, I would ask Him to make me twenty-five years younger. I want to delve deeper into the ocean of music." This inherent humility and passion only underscores Padma Bhushan Lalgudi Jayaraman's perfection, musical excellence and outstanding creativity. With a discerning musical acumen and a finely attuned ear for all that is aesthetic in music, Lalgudi revolutionized the style of violin playing, in the process inventing a whole new style - the prestigious Lalgudi Bani. He introduced the vocal style in his violin playing. His graceful and original style, anchored in traditional values of beauty is fascinating and has gained him innumerable fans. He is a composer par excellence and has to his credit several Pada Varnams, Varnams, Kritis & Tillanas, which are a scintillating blend of Raga, Bhava, Rhythm & lyrical beauty. A much sought after accompanist, brilliant soloist, composer, tunesmith, a great teacher - Lalgudi Jayaraman is all this and much more. Music has always been this maestro's passion, indeed his life's breath.

This product showcases his magnificent Pada Varnams. The aim of these products is to document the invaluable treasure of his compositions for posterity.
