One of the greatest composers of Indian classical music will be celebrated on 20-21 May in Melbourne at the annual Mummoorthigal Jayanthi and Tyagaraja Festival. The classical music of Southern India, also known as Carnatic music, is one of the world’s oldest and richest musical traditions. The music is developed using highly evolved melodic scales called ragas and varied rhythm cycles called talas. The music is enriched by several thousands of compositions, some of the eminent composers being Tyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshitar, Shyama Sastry and Swati Tirunal. The improvisation of the melodic and rhythmic structures is also a key feature of the music. Presented by the Academy of Indian Music Australia and Sruthi Laya Kendra Aust for the 31st successive year, the annual event recognises the contribution of composer sage Tyagaraja and fellow composers Muthuswamy Dikshithar and Shyama Sastri – considered by many as the ‘Holy Trinity’ of Carnatic music.
