 “Language is the dress of thought," said a great thinker. "Music is the dance of sound,” is a one line self-portrait of my guru Dr. Sripada Pinakapani.

To many averagely informed Telugus, Tyagaraja and Carnatic music are synonymous. The corpus of the Music Trinity’s compositions is the nectar of Carnatic classical music.

Tradition, according to poet T.S. Eliot, is the “presentness of the past” and the tradition of Carnatic classical music is alive in India and elsewhere on this planet due to that great ambrosial legacy left by those great masters.

Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastry had their own distinct, individualistic styles. Be it the thought process, lyrical complexity, the musical orientation, or the choice of rhythm, each one of them had his own stamp.
