In Praise of Chamudeshwari

Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar was the last Maharaja of the princely state of Mysore. He was a Renaissance man and a connoisseur of music. He composed many songs in praise of goddess Chamundeshwari, the presiding deity of Mysore and the royal family.

Here is a beautiful composition of Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar in raga Hindolam set to Mishra Jhampa tala. The clip is from one of my concerts.
