Raga Todi

Madurai Somasundaram sings Koluvamare Gada in his inimitable style.

Madurai S Somasundaram - or Somu, as we was universally referred to - was a musician whose sense of fun was never too far away from the most serious music he might be performing. His shruti was impeccable, and he was known particularly for his renditions of ragas such as Kalyani, Todi, Kamboji and Keeravani.
