The opening evening of Mudhra's festival on Friday, Dec. 7 had something worthwhile to offer - the release of a book titled ' Arutpa Amudham', songs of the Ramalinga Adigalar, tuned and notated by senior vidwan P S Narayanaswamy..
It has been a long drawn project for PSN, as the guru is fondly called and this evening, when he was also given an award for excellence his sishyas. the PSN Disciples Forum pushed the project to ensure the book was timed for this occasion.
The editor of Dina Mani, a thamizh daily, Vaidyanathan said that he expected the Arutpa songs to dominate many concerts this season. It may - PSN has overa dozen sishyas who are on the circuit and they will surely dedicate one special to their guru.
Other guests on stage were guru N Ramani, V V Sundaram, Nalli Kuppuswamy and Natarajan (ex Doordarshan).
Mudhra's concerts are held at the RKM School hall, Krishna St., off North Usman Rd., T. Nagar.
The book costs Rs.200 and comes with a CD of a sample of songs sung by all the sishyas, we were told.
