He stood his own ground at a time when Ghantasala and SPB were hugely popular. And actually, that's all true even today.

Vamshi Art Theaters is celebrating the 77th birth anniversary of renowned singer and musician Late A M Raja, on 14th November, at Kala Subbarao Kala Vedika, the minihall of Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha. On this occasion, a musical nite called A M Raja Cine Raagalu will be presented.

Amateur artistes like Y S Ramakrishna, M S Sarma, Vijay Kumar, Krishna, Jayasree and M V Ramana Kumar will be singing some of the memorable numbers of the singer - music director. The background music will be provided by Satyadev on the keyboard and Vidyasagar on the tabla.

A M Raja's first Tamil film was Samsaram (1951), in which he sang all the songs. His first Hindi film was Bahut Din Huye (1954), and the very next year, he started singing for Telugu films too. His duets with Jikki (whom he married later) were roaring hits.

In 1958, Raja turned to music direction, Sobha (Telugu) being his first film. Pelli Kaanuka (1960) established him as a music director. He has sung about 10,000 songs in different languages and has directed the music for about 100 films. He died in a train accident on 8th April, 1989, at Valliur in Tirunelveli District.

Renowned Carnatic vocalist and playback singer Vedavathy Prabhakar will be the chief guest. For further details, please contact Shiromani Vamsi Ramaraju, founder of Vamsi Art Theatres, at 2763-1000/98490-23852.
