Annamacharya

Part 2 of a two-part feature on the pada-kavi pitamaha, Annamacharya.

Annamacharya was born in 1424 in the village of Tallapaka in Andhra Pradesh. As the legend goes, at the age of 16, he had a vision of Lord Venkateswara which prompted him to write about 32,000 kirtanas and padams in praise of Lord Venkateswara and his consort Alamelu Manga. This programme features some of his songs on the rituals at the Tirumala temple, his sringara keertanas and sanskrit compositions, presented by Dr. Pappu Venugopal Rao. The expert comments and the songs are part of the set of CDs, Flowers at His Feet, brought out by Kalakendra of Swathi Soft Solutions.
