Bhakti Manjari The 13 forms of Bhakti
One of the most explored themes in carnatic classical music and yet eternally ambiguous is the theme of devotion or Bhakti. The current album is a three CD set where T.M.Krishna who belongs to the younger generation of the new band of musicians making a serious effort to keep the art forms sustaining. Though he might not be all that great a vocalist on stage performances,his recordings are often better and bearable. He cleverly chooses classical compositions by great maestros like the divine trinity, subramanya bharathi, Kshetragna, gopalakrishna bharathi and more that revolve around the thirteen classical forms of devotion like Sravanam, Keerthanam, Padasevanam so on and so forth. The 1st CD has a wonderful Tyagarajas composition Sri rama paadama in Amritavaahini raagam and Adi talam. Through the length of this live recording; Krishna manages to flex his vocal chords in a rather impressive way.
BEST TRACK TO LOOK OUT FOR: The third CD contains poet saint Purandhara dasas famous composition Jagadho dhaarana in Kapi raagam. Krishnas reach and clarity of voice and pronounciation is commendable here.
