This CD contains the Navaratri Kritis of Swati Tirunal. I have always been in awe with Maharaja Swathi Tirunal’s compositions. The achala(unshakable) bhakthi that the maharaja had and his yearning to be one with the almighty have been encapsulated in his may creations. His compositions range from varnams and kritis to swarajathis, group krithis like the utsava prabandam as well as javalis, padams , bhajans and thillanas. This set of Navaratri kritis have been presented with inputs from my Gurus as well as the majestic line up of artists who sang these kritis over the years in the beautiful Navaratri Mandapam at Trivandrum. Singing a tanam with mridangam was the tradition there prior to singing the kriti of the day. We have attempted to present a glimpse into that tradition.
