Thiruppavai is the holy words of Andal towards her beloved Lord Krishna. The literature is not just a book but it establishes love and the culture in a wide scope. Though we have found variations in our lifestyle, certain things cannot be changed and one such happiness in listening to Thiruppavai on the coldest Margazhi morning. Thiruppavai consists of 30 pasuram (verses). Andal, the daughter of Periyazhvaar, has written this literature expressing the love towards her lord and wakes up the girls in her community to worship God for prosperity in life.
In the first verses, Andal describes Lord Krishna and welcomes the girls for bathing. She praises Krishna’s beauty, bravery, and familiarity. These lines of Andal sound harmoniously in the composition performed by the music team of Gautam Umashankar. The music composed by Gautam Umashankar with the melodious voice of Sreenidhi Iyer gives soulful feeling while listening to the voice and words together. Rajeshvaidhya’s veena blends with Madhu’s Tabla and makes the listeners feel blessed to listen to the composition on a morning prayer. This is one of the best works of the Mridangam player Ramakrishnan along with the sweet keyboard notes of Vignesh. The heartening swarams of Violin by Sreeraman, the earthening sounds of the ghatam by Umashakar, and the kanjeera of Selvaganesh make the place where the song is played devotional.
If you are searching for a composition to fill your Margazhi morning with divinity, then this composition of the composer Gautam Umashankar will the best choice.
