Thiruvaiyaru to Chennai

The Thiruvaiyaru Thyagaraja Aradhana festival is perhaps one of the most celebrated events. Chennaiyil Thiruvaiyaru, which is starting today, is a music festival that seeks to reproduce the magic of the Thiruvaiyaru event in Chennai. Being held at the Kamarajar Arangam, this eight-day fiesta organised by Lakshman Sruthi Musicals, will showcase leading musicians as well as promising talent.
Speaking at a press conference called to announce the dates of the festival, singer P Unnikrishnan said, “There are so many kutcheris during the music season that the audience get confused at times when it comes to deciding which ones to attend! However, this event promises to be a huge draw. It strives to bring in not only Carnatic music lovers but also general music lovers.”
In its fifth edition this year, the festival also promises variety in the form of jugalbandhis. “If drums and guitar can go global, why can’t the mridangam,” asked one of the organisers at the event. Going by the scale of Chennaiyil Thiruvaiyaru, it seems it will only be a matter of time before it does!
