Trinity

A section of compositions by the Trinity

The outstanding contribution of the trinity – composers Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Shyama Shastri – forms the bedrock of Carnatic music. They redefined the boundaries of Carnatic music through their compositions, and it is perhaps a testament to their creativity and the validity of their innovations that their compositions are still often accepted as the benchmarks to define the ragas. A certain grandeur, even if it is subtle, is something that a listener automatically feels on listening to their compositions.
