Synopsis
Kanda Ganamutham
72 Melakarta compositions of Koteeswara Iyer
S. Rajam

Koteeswara Iyer was the inheritor of a rich musical heritage. He was the grandson of Kavi Kunjara Bharati, a contemporary of the Trinity and the author of many popular musical and devotional lyrics. Koteeswara Iyer composed mainly in Tamil and used the mudra Kavi Kunjara Dasan as a tribute to his grandfather. Koteeswara Iyer was the first one to compose separate songs in Tamil in all the 72 Melakarta incorporating the raga mudra in each one of them, which blended smoothly with the lyrics. His contribution to the illustration of vivadhi ragas is invaluable. All the songs are dedicated to his kuladeivam (family deity), Muruga and hence titled Kanda Ganamudam. The songs are highly poetic and are adorned with swarakshara sandhi-s, beautiful sangatis, replete with raga bhava and depth. Vivadi ragas are difficult to handle. But Koteeswara Iyer, not only composed his Melaraga kritis but also demonstrated and popularized them. Many ragas have acquired a distinct structure through these compositions.

In the field of music, S. Rajam is an unparalleled authority on Vivadi ragas and has done much to popularize Koteeswara Iyer's kritis. He has the distinction of being the only musician to have sung all the 72 compositions of Kanda Ganamutham, most of the kritis being accompanied by Raga, Niraval and Kalpana swaras. This product is a ready encyclopedia for students of music to get an in depth knowledge of the melodic structure of Melakartha Ragas. S.Rajam is a multifaceted genius with creative talents in a variety of fields such as music, musicology, classical painting and acting. It is a rare combination of talents that has made S.Rajam the phenomenon that he is today. He has immensely contributed to enrich our cultural heritage for over six decades.
