Award Winning Debut Album

Varnams Reimaged

The album casts a spotlight on a rare treasure – the 'Varṇam'. This compositional gem, inherent to the Carnatic music system, embodies the essence of ragas and serves as a cornerstone in the realm of learning. What makes this album particularly special is its resurrection of lesser-known Varnams, many of which have seldom, if ever, been captured in digital recordings. By merging the traditional with the new, the album encapsulates the spirit of innovation while honoring the roots of this time-honored art form.

The intention driving 'Varnams Reimaged' goes beyond the melodies – it's a call to expand the audience for this ancient art form. I believe that by fusing the past with the present, we can usher in a new era of appreciation and adoration for the rich tapestry of Indian classical music.

"Varnams Reimaged’ is a real musical treasure any passionate lover of Carnatic Music will adore and will like to preserve for future listening, and in fact over multiple repetitions. The album has also helped surface the masterly expertise of Kavitha Jayaraman in Carnatic Music, which she has put to use in resurrecting a few rare Ragas of the heritage. I feel this rare kind of mission is most likely to inspire many such endeavors in the future that will play a pivotal role in enriching the school of Carnatic Music." - NEW MUSIC ALERT

A Classic 17th-century composition by the prolific Carnatic music composer Saint Thyagaraja, this song captures his devotion to Lord Rama as he says "Believe me, Rama, I have reposed my faith in you and you only, as you are the essence of everything in the world." The song has been recreated with modern musical elements keeping the composer's emotions and helping it reach new audiences not accustomed to listening to this artform.
