Veena Dhanammal

A tribute to the legendary musician whose bani has had enormous influence on Carnatic music..

Veena Dhanammal was an accomplished musician who hailed from a devadasi lineage proficient in music. She was a legend in her own time, much sought after by her contemporaries. She cared nothing for audiences, and performed mainly for her own satisfaction. The informal music sessions at her home were attended by the who's who of Carnatic music. Veena Dhanammal was a revered albeit strict guru, known for her vast repertiore of kritis as well as padams and javalis. The Dhanammal Bani is best known for its style of padam and javali renditions, and for its unique and original renditions of kritis. This is a tribute to Veena Dhanammal, in connection with her death anniversary on October 15
