Popular Compositions

A selection of well-liked songs from the Carnatic music repertoire.

Certain songs strike a chord with listeners almost always and some of them have become undoubted evergreen classics. The appeal of the tunes and the inherent merit of the compositions is one reason for this but it can also be attributed to the way artistes over the years have performed them. The popularity of these songs is also reflected in the number of times they are presented in concerts or have been released on commercial recordings. Sometimes, it’s a rare song in a rare raga that becomes popular and end up being performed often. This programme presents a few such favourites.
