Mahakavi Sri Oothukadu Venkata Subbaiyer Memorial Day
After two years of hiatus due to the COVID environment, CAMAGA will restart its music activities with celebration of Mahakavi Sri Oothukadu Venkata Subbaiyer. He is a renowned composer who preceded the great Trinities of carnatic music. Some of his popular compositions include: Alai Payudhe Kanna. Oothukadu Venkata Subbaiyer also composed several kritis known as the “Saptha Rathna” kritis - somewhat similar to the Thyagaraja Pancharathna Kritis.
Sri Oothukadu Venkata Subbaiyer Memorial Day event would include Saptha rathna Kritis rendition by talented musicians from our community. Our Atlanta musicians will be led by Smt. Bhargavi Balasubramanian, professional musician and Smt. Vanitha Suresh from Wisconsin, both well-learned in the Saptha Rathna kritis.
