Trinity - Vilamba Kaala Kritis

Vilamba Kaala compositions of Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri.

Though there is a lot of leeway in the speed at which compositions are sung, there is an inherent aesthetic about what is the right pace. Certain compositions, the way they are structured, are best sung at a slow pace, while others create the best effect when presented at a medium or fast tempo. One of the indications of a slower pace of rendition is when the tala of the composition is marked as 2 kalai. This programme presents a few compositions of the Trinity in the slower speed, or vilamba kaala.
