Tribute to a Legend 

Posted on

Here is my tribute to a great legend…Dr. M. Balamurali Krishna. Ever since I can remember, his voice and music would play in our home. My dad being among one of his great admirers, I too developed great fondness for his music. His mesmerizing and commanding voice had me under his spell ever since a child. Although¬†I never attended any of his concerts that I can recollect, his musical presence has forever been in my life. I am truly grateful for all the musical genius he has left behind for music lovers to enjoy. Just recently, I had decided to learn one of his very famous Thillanas in Raga Brindavani Sarang. As you can imagine, daring to even try singing one of his Thillanas took courage. Attempting to learn it was literally facing my fears head on especially when I didn’t think I could do it. I decided to put my fears aside and give it my best try. Here’s my humble attempt at singing one of this Maestro’s Thillanas. With great reverence presenting Dr. M.Balamurali Krishna’s Brindavani Thillana.
