Gajavadana - Todi

We've uploaded a recording of our rendition of gajavadana in tODi. This piece was recorded during our concert for the Music Academy in Dec 2006.

I would like to know if this composition is on Murugan or Vinayaka. It's a wonderful composition and I am sure you must have learnt it in the style of Smt. Brinda - Muktha.


It is a composition on Muruga. A masterpiece of Kumara Ettayendra. Yes we were lucky to learnt it from Brindamma, but she used to sing it like a dream. I also had privilege to learnt from Dr.T. Vishwanathan in Vina Dhanammal Bani workshop conducted by Sampradaya and Ford foundation.
