Veena Workshop DescriptionPurandara Daasar was a great composer of Carnatic music before the time of the Trinity of Tyagaraja, Dikshitar and Shyama Sastri. His songs were not in unreachable Sanskrit, but instead he preached the Vedas to millions by singing in Kannada. He was the one who standardized the early lessons in music and has given us many beautiful compositions on Vishnu and Krishna. His works include many different types of compositions, from bhajans and geetams to kritis. Purandara Daasar is believed to have systematized the early music lessons - sarali varisai, janTai varisai, geetams and also chose maayamaaLava gowLa as the raagam to be used for these. MaayamaaLavagowLa is an appropriate raaga because it is symmetric and has gamakams, so that students learn the basic elements of Carnatic music along with some more advanced concepts. His songs are simple, and easy to learn. He composed many geetams and keertanais and songs in kannadaa known as "dEvarnaama." Because of his role in so many fundamental aspects of this music, he is called the Pithamaha (Great Father) of Carnatic music.
