Popular Compositions

A selection of a few evergreen classical compositions

Songs such as Mysore Vasudevacharya's Brochevaarevarura and Gopalakrishna Bharati's Eppo Varuvaaro have over time become extremely popular songs. In fact, Eppo Varuvaaro is identified so closely with Madurai Mani Iyer that every rendition of that song is almost subconsciously compared against his. And it is not just the smaller songs that have gained this immediate recognition. Even a varnam like Viriboni in Raga Bhairavi, which is as complex and elaborate as any kriti, is both easily identified and popularly enjoyed. This programme features a few such songs that become “all-time favourites”.
