Mamava Meenakshi – Dikshithar

This carnatic composition praises the deity at the famed temple in Madurai – Meenakshi. The recording is from my concert at BTM Cultural Academy in Bangalore with musicians N.N.Ganesh Kumar (violin) P.Srinivasamurthy (mridangam) and A.V.Kashinath (kanjira) supporting on stage.

For many years Raga Varali was not taught by teachers and if you wondered what the reason was, read here. This is a great melody for improvisation and the song Mamava Meenakshi gives ample scope for neraval and kalpana swaras.
