Visions of Rama : Carnatic clips from Youtube.

Rama , the subject of a recent film by mani ratnam, has been a south indian icon  for many hundereds of years, at least from the thyagaraja era of post venkatamakhin scheme of “carnatic” music. (which deserves its own blog post for the three people who still care. ) This , however, can serve as an introduction to people that like to watch rama on youtube

    Rama Rama kya hai dramaaa? 😀 Call it coincidence or cosmic contrivance, whenever I catch (or comment adichufy on) Kandukonden Kandukonden (the RM movie), a post on carnatic concert(s) creeps up on me, just like this!

    Though the last time that happened was two Novembers back, my head is still swimming from the missing jamakkaalam to the seven red cams to the sound and the visuals uniting to create a new experience for a popcorn crunching carnatic-lovin’ crowd. And now you come along to counterpoint *that* “catch concert on big screen” communique with *this* informal “introduction to people that like to watch rama on youtube”, no less! 😀

    Oh for the gnanasoonyams of the world (me me me) to get a taste of (Unni)Krishna begging Rama to let him be his forever dwarapalaka. Or for that matter to contemplate (what it would possibly feel like for someone in the know to hear for the first time) Krishna outlining something unusual in Behag.
