Sivan Arul

Sethalapathy Balasubramanian

Sethalapathi Balasubramanian, or Balu Mama, as he was endearingly called, in the field of Carnatic Music, is an icon to be reckoned with in parlance of honest, pure soulful music. His childlike innocent character always reflected in his music and never failed to enrapture the listener. Viruttams were his forte and his renditions of Viruttams leave the audience in a fix as to which element the music or the lyrics - is in its highest form of beauty. He always insisted in maintaining the diction and bringing out the beauty in the Lyrics, while encompassing the ultimate form of the raga into the rendition. Being the direct disciple of Tamil Thyagayyar, Papanasam Sivan, the fervor and Bhakthi with which he performs his Master's compositions is an experience of its own.

This album brings to you a superb collection of some of his soul stirring Viruttams along with his power packed music. His Viruttams in each and every raga brought out a unique flavor and dimension. His rendition of Raga Karaharapriya remains unsurpassed till date. This album is a live concert performed at Krishna Gana Sabha
