Sri Thyagaraja 


Tyagaraja (d. 1848) was one of the most important composers of Carnatic music. He is regarded as one of the Ć¢??trinityĆ¢?? of Carnatic music composers, along with Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri. He was a devotee of Rama. Sri Tyagaraja, the most celebrated Carnatic Music saint was a great devotee of Lord Sri Rama. Tyagaraja lived to the full extent that God realization is best achieved through Nadopasana (music with devotion). His songs are filled with an intimate devotion to Rama, all through revealing his deep understanding of the tenets of the Vedas and Upanishads.


n addition to nearly 700 compositions (kritis), Tyagaraja composed two musical plays in Telugu, the Prahlaada Bhakthi Vijayam and the Nauka Charithram. Prahlada Bhakti Vijayam is in five acts with 45 Krithis set in 28 raagas and 138 verses, in different metres in Telugu. Nauka Charitam is a shorter play in one act with 21 kritis set in 13 ragas and 43 verses. The latter is the most popular of Tyagaraja's operas, and is a creation of the composer's own imagination and has no basis in the Srimadh Bhaagavatha Puraana. Tyagaraja also composed a number of simple devotional pieces appropriate for choral singing.


To this day, a commemorative music festival called the Tyagaraja Aaradhana is held at Thiruvaiyaru in the months of January to February every year. In the US, there is a Cleveland Tyagaraja Aradhana held in Cleveland, Ohio every April. There is also a Chicago Thyagaraja Utsavam. Usually, dozens of Carnatic musicians preside and perform in this festival. With the large influx of Indians in the United States in the late 20th and early 21st century, many other cities in the USA with large Telugu/Tamil/Kannada populations now regularly hold the Tyagaraja Aradhana festivals every year.
