I am happy to inform you that 2019 is the birth centenary year of my esteemed guru, the late Sangita Kala Acharya Sri S. Rajam.

An eminent musician and painter, he has contributed immensely to both the arts. He hasimmortalized the image of the musical trinity, Thyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshitar and Syama Sastry through his paintings. His creations have adorned the covers of numerous editions of Kalki and Kalaimagal magazines, especially the Deepavali Malars. Many of his paintings have been preserved for eternity in a time capsule at the Hindu Temple in Kauai Island, Hawaii.

With his training under great gurus like Papanasam Sivan, Madurai Mani Iyer, TL Venkatarama Iyer and others, Sri S. Rajam was a repository of many kritis in their most authentic renditions.

He brought the 72-melakarta ragas into the fold of concerts and sang them effortlessly,mesmerizing listeners with their bhava in his haunting voice. S. Rajam set to tune many compositions and many popular musicians render these at performances.

Among his most iconic works, Sri S. Rajam brought a new dimension to many music compositions by capturing them in paintings. He elevated the experience of listening to kritis by bringing them visual beauty and allowing audiences to watch the songs as they heard them.

It is my deepest wish to bring to wide audiences, the beauty and rapture of Sri S. Rajam’s art and musical vidwat. This is a wonderful opportunity for your sabha / school to partake in spreading the works of this great artist and familiarizing today’s music lovers and students to his greatness.
