Palghat Srirama Bhagavathar[edit]

He was a doyen of Carnatic music in the pre-independence era. He carried the hoary traditions of Saint Tyagaraja Swamigal after undergoing rigorous tutelage under the great Palghat (Nurni) Anantarama Bhagavathar. He had a voice that was of 8 kattai and was in the era when concerts were without microphones. His justice to rendering the raga alapana is perhaps unequalled to this date. His concerts used to last over 4 hours at a stretch which was a divine gift to his rasikas. He was one of the greatest Carnatic vocalists of his time and could be compared with the best for purity of voice ane rendition. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.245.119.100 (talk) 15:03, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Palghat Srirama Bhagavathar[edit]

Palghat Srirama Bhagavathar was honored by the Maharajas of Travancore and Mysore at various points in time. It was based on his recommendation that the renowned Carnatic vocalist Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer was granted audience by the Maharaja of Travancore and later became an Asthana Vidwan there. Palghat Srirama Bhagavathar did not hanker for fame or money. He was a Rama bhakta at heart and would make it a point to sing a Swati Tirunal kriti in all his concerts besides popularizing Tamil songs like Bharatiar songs in the independence era. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.245.119.100 (talk) 15:11, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
