Dear Friends,

It is with immense pleasure that we wish to announce the release of the English translation/transliteration of the magnum opus of Brahmashri Subbarama Dikshitar, the Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini (SSP). This will take place at Sastri Hall on Sept 26, 2010 in Chennai around 5:30pm (details below). Our close friend Smt. Vidya Jayaraman and Dr. Shri P.P. Narayanaswami have done the painstaking work of translating, editing, and publishing the volume. The Sangita Lakshana Pracina Paddhati and Lakshana Sangraha sections are translated (along with critical commentary) by our guru, veteran musicologist-musician, Sangita Kala Acharya Kalaimaamani Nadha Yogi Professor Shri S.R. Janakiraman.

The function is conducted under the auspices of Brhaddvani. Professor SRJ will also be releasing a 5-CD album titled "Pearls of South Indian Ragas" during the function which is sure to be a wonderful treasure for musicians and music students alike. The book / CD release will be capped off by a performance by Shri Sriram Parasuram in which he will be expounding some of the rare compositions found in the SSP.

It is well known that the SSP is by far the most complete musicological text to date and stands as an authoritative encyclopedia for the compositions of the prolific Composer/Saint, Shri Muthuswamy Dikshitar as well as those of the author, Subbarama Dikshitar, not to mention the raga lakshanas of many rare and oft unheard ragas from the Asampurna Mela Paddhati . This is the first English edition of the SSP and it is bound to be useful for students and scholars alike who donít know Telugu or Tamil. Further details on the release function can be found below.
