Can you remember the tune for the song Addamanti Manasu Undi? Now don't you want to listen to it? Yes, head this way for an experience better than raaga or YouTube.
Rangamani Chariar Arts Academy, in association with Srikalanidhi, is organising a musical nite called Manase Andala Brindavanam Cine Sangeeta Sammelanam, at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, on 5th July. Designed and composed by V L N Chariar, the movie songs will have the word Manasu in either charanam or pallavi.
Supported for the orchestra by Srikanth and Raju on the keyboard, Kota Acchibabu on the clarinet, and Ramu and Nagaraj on the table, eminent semi-professional singers like D A Mitra, Venkat Rao, M Prasanna, Lakshmi, Padmavathi, V A Lakshmi and Amantha, all AIR and TV artistes, will sing about 25 old melodies like Manase Andala Brindavanam from Manchi Kutumbam, Manasuna Manasai from Dr Chakravarthy, Addamanti Manasu Undi from Kalasi Unte Kaladhu Sukhamu, Manasu Parimalinchene from Krishnarjuna Yudham, Maunamugaani Manasu Padina from Gundamma Katha and Mauname Nee Bhasha O Mooga Manasa from Guppedu Manasa.
Rangamani Chariar Arts Academy was established in April of 2007 by V L N Chariar, a 75-year-old music composer, singer and anchor, in memory of his late wife Vangipuram Rangamani. V L N Chariar is a well-known personality in cultural circles. He has been in this field since 1952, and has been conferred upon the title of Raaga Visleshana Visharada by Dr C Narayana Reddy in 2002 for completing 50 years of music composing. The uniqueness about him is that he organises musical nites based on classical music ragas. He trains singers to sing a particular song in different ragas.
