Here goes my version of the saint Sri. Thiagaraja's Krithi - ' Entharo Mahanubavulu ' .
Arranged and Played this soulful track as a tribute to the great saint in conjunction with his 250th Birth Anniversary :) :) !! Hope you all Enjoy !!
One of St. Thyagaraja's universally popular pancharatna krithi Entharo Mahanubhavulu set in Sree ragam fused with Motherjane's Mindstreet. I forgot the saahithya(lyric) midway, which is a sin. Also, the record clarity is terrible. Which is again a sin. But this was one jam I just couldn't resist from uploading. Jeomon George on guitar and backing vocals.
"The carnatification", a carnatic musical presentation on a electric guitar is what makes the album entirely different from the others in the market. The carnatification is nothing but CARNATIC MODIFICATION . The album is filled with pure essence of carnatic music of highest order, comprising of high standard and popular krithis by the greats such as muthuswamy dikshidar, thyarajar, periyaswamy thooran , patnam Subramaniayam Iyer, madurai mani Iyer and purandaradasar. And as a highlight have my first composition too, a peppy ragamalika number.
The album is distinctly unique for the style of playing with double octaves , harmonies, and artificial harmonies and highly grooved swara sections which are completely new to the audience of carnatic. . I LL assure it to be a youth favorite because of the electric guitar factor and the recording quality and the brand names in the album.
BIG SHOTS IN THE ALBUM
THE CARNATIFICATION has some real big names who are currently at the peak in the carnatic feild. I have been accompanied by my dad and percussion maestro Prapancham Ravindran on the mridangam , kanjira maestro B.S.Purushottam and hugely reputed DR.S. Karthick on the Ghatam. The 3 rhythm heroes have provided some brilliant grooves with the electric guitar , thus making it sound epic.
