Artistes' Panorama



AriyakKudi Ramanuja Iyengar

No write-up on Carnatic music would be complete without a mention of this revolutionary. The concert format that is followed today is his brain-child. His concerts reflected the perfect balance between the creative and re-creative aspects of Carnatic music. He was immensely popular for his crisp presentation and uncanny ability to judge the pulse of the audience. He immortalised Andal's Tiruppavais  by setting them to tune and making them concert-worthy. Srisubramanyaya (Kambhoji), Endaromahanubhavulu (Sriragam), Srivenugopala (Kurinji)  and the like were some of his popular hits.
