You asked for a list of Carnatic music or Indian music books, and here it is.
A very thoughtful reader suggested a separate section of film songs. I thought, great idea! Now you can browse film songs by title and find out the raga of each!
The glossary has been updated with several new terms. You can see it online or download the new, updated version!
You'll find mini-improvements the site over as I try to update it little by little. A few more song meanings here, a composer biography there, fixing typos, etc., all trying to make each bit better. If you see anything else that needs tweaking and have an idea how to do it, please let me know.
Featured Links - Tyagaraja
Hundreds (maybe 600?) lyrics, some with audio, to songs by Tyagaraja and other composer. The site also has photos, bios, sortable lists and more.
R. Sanka's lyrics to nearly 100 Tyagaraja kritis in neat transliteration.
If you missed the latest additions or last month's
issue, don't worry. All our new stuff is on the site.
If you still haven't posted something in our message forum
or added a listing to the calendar (now updated), go do it now!
Some other ideas:
You can also check out the geethams we have. Or scroll through composers, read a biography, and print it out.
Check the glossary for a meaning. Tell a friend about the site. Take a quiz. Take one of
our minipolls. Sign up a friend for the mailing list. Rave about the latest article in the message forum.
Visit a site where you can listen to music. Find a good book to read from the booklist. Practice your janta varisais. Learn about swaras. I could go on and on!
