It's India's first professional music group of children, and its clientele include A R Rehman, Ilayaraja and Yuvan Shankar Raja. Finding out why, then, is quite an appetizing proposition.

Sri Lakshmi Nrisimha Swamy Seva Samithi (SLNSSS) is organising a musical festival from 23rd to 27th May, at the Keyes Girls High School. Carnatic vocal by Sanjay Subramanyam, T M Krishna and Alladi Aishwarya, and film music by Anooradha Sriram and Abbaswaram Ramjhi & troupe, form part of the 5-day bonanza. Today, the fourth and penultimate day, Abbaswara Ramjhi's Issai Mazhalai, India's first professional music group featuring children, will play light and film-based music.

Issai Mazhalai is the brainchild of Abbaswara Ramjhi, and was formed in the year 2000. Ramjhi is a veteran musician with oodles of music talent, be it in classical, pop, Western or light music. After being part of his bands Frustrations Amalgamated and Abbaswaram for 28 years, he started Issai Mazhalai, with a group of 14 children in the age group of 4 to 16 years. The group now has 72 performing children, both in light and Carnatic music.

The group has performed about 400 shows till date, all over India and abroad. It was A R Rahman who first made the children sing in his film Lagaan. He continued in several of his films, and many other music directors like Vidya Sagar, Ilayaraja, Bharadwaj, Yuvan Shankar Raja and Y V Prakash followed suit.

Some of the movies featuring songs sung by the group are Kannathil Muthamittal, Swadesh, Chandramukhi, Dhool, Kanda Nal Mudhal, Vasool Raja MBBS, Madurai and Virumandi. 7 years since its inception, Ramjhi is now proud to say that whenever one hears a child's voice in any Indian film, it is from Issai Mazhalai.

SLNSSS was formed in the year 2000, with the devotional and noble thought of reconstructing the centuries old temple of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy, which is in a dilapidated and neglected state, at Nala Bazaar, R P Road, Secunderabad. The uniqueness of this temple is that Lord Narasimha Swamy is in a standing posture with the Aahwana Mudra Hastam, giving an appearance of inviting devotees for blessings.

The skeletal work of the temple has been done by the samithi, with the help of donations from devotees. Further construction activities on the Sanctum Sanctorium, Upa Sannidhis, Dwajasthambam, Gopuram and Sthapati are being started to enable the reinstallation of deities in the Maha Aalayam.

To fulfill these activities, the samithi intends to organise fund-raising cultural activities, and the music fest from 23rd to 27th May is a part of this. The donations and contributions made to the samithi will be utilised only for the construction of the Lord's temple.

The donor passes to the music fest are Rs. 500 for all the five days, or Rs. 200 and Rs. 100 per day per head. For further details, please contact A S Mohan at 98481-47344 or N T Seshadri at 93470-67467 or Sounderajan at 98483-72972.
