Teredide Mane O Baa Atithi

This is a popular melody with a tinge of classical touch. The composition was done by the legendary M.Ranga Rao who brought to us numerous wonderful tunes in Kannada.

The lyrics for this song were penned by none other than the doyen of Kannada literature Kuppali Venkatappagowda Puttappa popularly known to us by his pen name, Kuvempu. Kuvempu was honored with several awards throughout his career including the prestigious Jnanpith Award in 1967. Kuvempu gave us a treasure of short stories, poems, biographies, plays and novels.

This is my tribute to Kuvempu.

This is the first time I have experimented to cover two singers in one song. Take a listen and enjoy.

ತೆರೆದಿದೆ ಮನ ಓ ಬಾ ಅತಿಥಿ
ಹೊಸಬೆಳಕಿನ ಹೊಸ ಗಾಳಿಯಾ
ಹೊಸ ಬಾಳನು ತಾ ಅತಿಥಿ

ಆವ ರೂಪದೊಳು ಬಂದರು ಸರಿಯೇ

ಆವ ವೇಷದೊಳು ನಿಂದರು ಸರಿಯೇ
ನೇಸರುದಯದೊಲು ಬಹೆಯಾ ಬಾ
ತಿಂಗಳಂದದಲಿ ಬಹೆಯಾ ಬಾ ||

ಇಂತಾದರು ಬಾ ಅಂತಾದರೂ ಬಾ

ಎಂತಾದರು ಬಾ ಬಾ ಬಾ
ಬೇಸರ ವಿದನು ರಿಸುವ ಹೊಸ ಬಾಳ
ಉಸಿರಾಗಿ ಬಾ ಬಾ ಬಾ ||

ಕಡಲಾಗಿ ಬಾ ಬಾನಾಗಿ ಬಾ

ಗಿರಿಯಾಗಿ ಬಾ ಕಾನಾಗಿ ಬಾ
ಕಡಲಾಗಿ ಬಾನಾಗಿ ಗಿರಿಯಾಗಿ ಕಾನಾಗಿ
ತೆರೆದಿದೆ ಮನ ಓ ಬಾ
ಹೊಸ ತಾನದ ಹೊಸ ಗಾನದ
ಹೊಸ ತಾನದ ಹೊಸ ಗಾನದ
ರಸ ಜೀವವ ತಾ ತಾ ತಾ ||

It looks the voice is from the heart and the lyrics from the soul. With perfect diction this is real music for ears ! Base raga for Palavi sounds like that of 'Poojisalende' ... Good mixing elevates the song quality. Good work, congrats...!
