Atma Nivedanam meaning absolute surrender to the Almighty is vividly portrayed in this product. Kalpadruma, an exceptional organization annually presents renowned artistes to perform during its fesitival as a homage to its founder, Sri K. S. Parameswaran. This year's performance features Umayalpuram Sri K. Sivaraman presenting Atma Nivedanam where, he explores the emotional outpour and sentiments of the immortal musical trinity of carnatic music, Saint Thyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshithar & Shyama Sastri, whose interaction with the divine was at its best. Preserving the ideals of the Trinity whose monumental compositions were soaked in devotion, this presentation emphasizes more on lyrical beauty and their invaluable inputs showered by the illustrious composers. These rasas are attributed to the Trinity through Drakshapaka (Thyagaraja), Kadalipaka (Shyama Sastri) and Narikelapaka (Dikshitar) illustrating the easiness and effort involved in tasting a grape, a plantain and a coconut. Three vocalists pay their homage to the divine composers with the soulful and blissful music exuding the deep involvement and devotion.
Umayalpuram Sri K. Sivaraman brings out three different moods in his three Thaniavarthanams with B.Shree Sundarkumar in Adi, Misra Chapu and Rupaka Chapu talas. This presentation is at once novel, fantastic and a unique exhibition of the percussive art. The violin accompaniment by Mysore M. Nagaraj enhances the success of the concert to a high level of excellence.
