jest a keschun...not really related to your post
why is carnatic music mostly written in telugu? is it cos most of the composers were from telangana or cos telugu is more musical than tamizh or kannada?

hey when we guys gonna meet again?
(in thunder, lightning or in rain?)

miss all the trauma! i gotta sing a keerthana and gotta hear more stories of ur struggles with hindi...hehehe

PS: got bored of them dumb word verification codes...figured i aint got such a beautiful mind :(

i thought it was mostly sanskrit than
telugu or tam.. and am sure its more tam
than telugu.. but ya telugu is certainly
more musical than any other indian language.

meet sometime this week fer sure.. we will
meet at delta labs in the dark star by the
edge of the galaxy. :-)

PS : code yrdzg
( "you r dozing" ? )

no there is more gult than sanskrit in carnatic music. I thought u had probably lernt carnatic music at some point...

the following lines:
"prema joochi naapai...pedda manasu chesi
ee mahima lalla...nindara joopi"
i mean that can only be telugu
btw that song was "Seetha Pathe"

Even "Sambha Shiva", one of my favorite geethams goes:
"Sarasa rekuni namamamthram
Korina noonipa dabjamanthram
Dasudow Chinnakrishnuniki dikkuni
Veyani Sokkanna nooninam mukkoni"

I think i took two whole days to by-heart those lines!!!!

Im' sure you've herd 'Raravenu Gopabala' i think that is also in gult..and it is so poetic and musical...it sounds great on the veena, as a vocal song...its just awesome!

tyagaraja,muthuswami dikshitar and syama
sastri ( trinity of carnatic music) all hail
from thiruvarur in TN.
tyagaraja was a telugu brahmin and hence
the telugu influence.

but wats the point in singing something if
dont understand what it means.. i know the
music is still mellow enough but wudnt it
be better if u actually understood it all..
give it a shot.

i think u forgot how i cribbed the other day
in opus coz i dint have the oppurtunity to
learn carnatic wen i was young.
but i do appreciate tam poems a lot..
especially bharathiyar poems.

no i did sit with a gult neighbour and wrote down the meaning of each song....cos as u said whats the point singing sumthing of you can't understand it.
just that in school for these friggin singing comps you had to "by-heart" a nice song and all....
i started music in school..stopped it..and resumed it again in college...course..i really appreciated it only when i was in college...
and it is never too late to learn singing...trust me on that...

Can you please post the meanings of the lyrics to chinnanchiru kiliye? I understand some of them e.g. un kannil neer vazhindaal... or kannathil muthamittal.. but the rest is too sen-thamizh for me. i love the song though so want to know the meaning.
