Saturday, April 14, 2012 (8.30 am to 9.30 pm)
Chinmaya Mission Rameswaram, 14451 Franklin Ave. Tustin, CA 92780 

Swati Tirunal (1813-1846), Maharaja of Travancore, India, composed music in both Hindusthani and Karnatic styles and is also perhaps the finest-ever composer of music for dance in India as well as one of the earliest writers of modern Hindi poetry for music. The Day's program consists of several hours of renditions of Maharaja Swati Tirunal's compositions (Ragamaalikas, Navaratri Kritis, Kirtanams and Padams) by well-known local musicians. The Maharaja's Hindustani compositions are also featured. All music lovers are welcome at the program, and musicians are welcome to perform. Sangeethakalaanidhis TN Krishnan, Ramani, TK Govinda Rao, RK Sreekantan, Vellore Ramabhadran, and Hindusthani doyen Lakshmi Shankar are some of the luminaries to have graced the festival over the years.
