@yaliniraja 🔥🔥🔥 From our collab with @prithvi15 back in May.
Based on Kathirkamar Kovil in Eelam. Kathir meaning sun rays and Kamam meaning village, ultimately denoting a village which is graced by Murugan’s rays. This piece is a Thirupugal written by Arunagirinathar, a poet who lived during the 14th century. There are 16 Thirupugals based on temples in Eelam, 13 alone are based on Kathirkamar Kovil.

Was amazing working with @prithvi15 ! Ever since I was a kid, this has always been one of my favourite thirupugals. Seriously, close your eyes and listen to them work their magic @prithvi15 and @saibruntha_s 😍

Music produced by: @prithvi15 @krimsonavenuestudios

I wish to kiss the soil from my motherland
I wish to wander on Thamil land
For us who are separated from our motherland, our memories like a fire continue to burn us
Unfulfilled dreams and wishes, a thousand in our hearts, continue to hurt like an open wound...

@saibruntha_s and I did this months ago. Our interpretation to Appar’s thevaram, Maasil Veenaiyum.

I experience Him when I hear a veena and see the evening moon. The blowing wind also carries the scent of thiruneeru...

Improv session with @the_flute_guy!
As day turned to night she anxiously awaited his arrival. He had promised her that he would return. When she closed her eyes she could faintly hear his music which made her heart wander and rejoice. Will she see his lotus shaped eyes and honey like lips just one more time?

Ancestral home of the Tanjore Quartet🙏🏾
In all my years dancing, I’ve never experienced anything as soulful as these few moments. Being able to practice a Ponniah Pillai(1888) varnam in his home where it may have been conceived was the greatest boon I could ever ask for. Being a student of the Thanjai Nalvar bani has been such a heartwarming experience.
In the past few years I’ve made many trips to Thanjavur and each time Narthaki Amma would tell me to go and visit Kittappa Thatha’s home. I would always respond saying I’d only make the visit with her because I wanted to experience this divine space with her. This past January it happened. We were able to visit the ancestral home of the Thanjai Nalvar. I’ve always felt so closely connected to Thanjavur, the Periya kovil, the Chozha empire and the history. And being in this home only makes me constantly wonder how Sadir would have been presented by the devadasis at the Periya Kovil all those years ago.

Sutta pazham or Sudaatha pazham?
Avvaiyar was one of thirty female authors during the Sangam period (300 BCE-300 CE). A contemporary of Thiruvalluvar, she penned Aathichudi and many verses in Kurunthokai, Akananuru and Purananuru.
Here’s a clip from Kanthan Aadal where Sudharshan Anna and I present an interpretation of Avviyar’s encounter with Murugan.
Commentary: Prof. Sudharshan Duraiyappah
Violin: Thirumathi Thanathevy Mithradeva

Do you not have the desire to see and show mercy to this devotee with your twelve eyes
If you do not be merciful and shower your grace, then who else will?
You are my mother and father, I believed that you are everything in my life
Oh Lord of all worlds, consort of Valli and Deivanai, Lord who rides the peacock. Oh Muruga.

A beautiful thirupugazh about Shanmugha (six faced Murugan)
ஏறுமயி லேறிவிளை யாடுமுக மொன்றே
ஈசருடன் ஞானமொழி பேசுமுக மொன்றே
கூறுமடி யார்கள்வினை தீர்க்குமுக மொன்றே
குன்றுருவ வேல்வாங்கி நின்றமுக மொன்றே
மாறுபடு சூரரை வதைத்தமுக மொன்றே
வள்ளியை மணம்புணர வந்தமுக மொன்றே
ஆறுமுக மானபொருள் நீயருளல் வேண்டும்
ஆதியரு ணாசல மமர்ந்த பெருமாளே

Erumayil eri vilayadum mugam ondru

Kundruruva vel vaangi nindra mugam ondru
Maarupadu sooranai vadhaitha mugam ondru
Valliyai manam punara vandha mugam ondru
Aarumugam aanaporul nee arula vendum
Aadhi arunachalam amarntha perumaale

One face which rides the peacock
One face which taught the mantram Aum to Lord Siva
One face which eradicates the sorrow of the devotees who chant his name
One face which took the spear to destroy mount Krauncham (mountain of Karma)
One face which annihilated the opposing Suran and his allies
One face which came to marry Valli
Through your blessings please tell me the significance of these six faces
Oh Lord! One who resides on mount Thiruvaanamalai
