Who can beat the musical heritage of Mylapore, in particular that of the four Mada Streets? And what better time to walk around it than in December – the Music Season? This was the very quadrangle where musical greats such as Papanasam Sivan and Koteeswara Iyer had composed. The Padigam that Tirugnanasamabandar sang to revive Poompavai still lingers here. Here was where Ambi Dikshitar taught S Rajam, TL Venkatarama Iyer and DK Pattammal. Here is where the proud administrators of Sabhas lived, organised and quarreled bitterly. Several stars – GNB, Madurai Mani and Brinda/Mukta had their debuts in street concerts right here.
To make it a musical experience, we are having Arthi and Archana, students of Sangita Kalanidhi R Vedavalli to come along and sing some of the immortal songs associated with the place.
The walk will begin at 6.00 am and end at 8.00 am after which we will have breakfast. Those who wish to register can do so as follows:
