Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam - Part 2

The second part of a two-part feature on Tyagaraja's Geya Nataka, Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam.

Tyagaraja has composed three musical operas or Geya Natakas - Nauka Charitramu, which describes the journey of Krishna and the gopis on a boat; Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam, which describes the depth of Prahlada's devotion; and Sitarama Vijayam. Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam, which is in five acts, has 45 songs in 29 ragas, and also has Telugu/Sanskrit poetry, grammatical features like kanda padyam, dvipadai, utpala maala, champaka maala, and dhandakam. It also includes many songs that are popular but are not widely known to be part of Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam. This is the second and concluding part of a two-part feature on Tyagaraja's Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam.
