CARNATIC MUSIC INFORMATION
Dr. M. Balamuralikrishna [South Indian Vocal Carnatic Style]
Dr. M. Balamuralikrishna is one of the towering figures in contemporary Karnatak Style (South Indian Classical) music. He is prominently featured in many books, articles and web sites devoted to Karnatak music, including his own. He is not only one of the most admired interpreters of the Karnatak classics, but also a respected composer in the traditional forms. The recording is from an out-of-print cassette on the Sangeetha label. It features several outstanding accompanists: A. Kanyakumari on violin, T.K. Murthy on mridangam and H.P. Ramachar on kanjira. The piece is a composition of Balamuralikrishna in the extended ragam-tanam-pallavi form, set in the ragam Gamanasrama and in the rarely-heard talam Raja Navamukhi. These files have been encoded at a lower bitrate, which makes the files smaller (less than 25 MB each) but reduces sound quality.

Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty is one of the rising stars in the world of North Indian classical vocal music. He is joined in this performance by Samar Saha on tablas and Sanjoy Chakraborty on harmonium.

Dhrupad probably evolved from the earlier chanting of Om, the sacred syllable which is claimed to be the source of all creation. Later, the rhythmic chanting of the Vedic scriptures evolved into singing of Chhanda and Prabandha. …
