Congaree Shlokam - With Professor Sethuraman | Upload Music

Although I have not been posting any song here frequently, I have been very active musically. Enriching discussions with many musicians have been polishing me. Have met with some good music friends and made some more online. The music circle has been expanding and sometimes I wonder if it going beyond my memory.

Columbia Hindu Temple has been a symbol of hindu harmony. Northern and Southern hinduism blended seamlessly with people coming together and helping each other for many festivals. PraaN PRathisthta of Shiva was one such big festival for which unprecedented number of people came all over from distant places to witness the deity being installed.

Shiva and Vishnu have devotees all over India. Prof. Sethuraman of USC, a prolific writer wrote the following shlokam on the residing Shiva deity by including references to Congaree and Saluda rivers for which he had asked me to compose music. This is a simplified version of a much more complex arrangement that will be released later. This clip contains only my voice supported by a background shruthi.
