    Saint Tyagaraja Aradhana Day Invite - Part 2 - Celebration of Carnatik Music and Devotion

  • Tyagaraja Aradhana festival is observed by artists, gurus, students, and connoisseurs of carnatic music around the world to pay homage to the great saint composer Tyagaraja (1747-1847). Saint Tyagaraja composed thousands of kritis majorly in Telugu and also in Sanskrit in invocation and praise of Lord Rama. Pushya Bahula Panchami, his Samadhi day is commemorated every year by group singing of five of his Pancharatna compositions (five gems) in his honor. Typically, this group singing is preceded by individual renditions by students of carnatic music. This year is the 173rd Aradhana. 

    Starting this year, this great tradition of paying homage to saint Tyagaraja is going to be observed at RKT Dallas! Join the DFW Indian carnatic music lovers.
