‘Tatva Tangali’ soothes listeners at Rangayana

February 14, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: ‘Tatva Tangali,’ a tatvapada concert by Basavalingaiah Hiremutt and troupe organised at Bhoomigeeta in Rangayana premises last evening as part of Raaga Rangayana, received good response from the art-lovers.

Senior tatvapada singer Ekatari Ramaiah launched the event by rendering tatvapada ‘Endu Nodiri lokada kanna, sulallu henna, Malla janarige tiliyadallannna…’

Later, noted tatvapada singer Basavalingaiah Hiremutt enthralled the gathering by rendering over 15 tatvapadas including Santa Shishunala Sharifa’s ‘Ninnolage ninu elidu nodanna…’, Kanakadasa’s ‘Satyavantara Sanghaviralu theertavetake…’ and ‘Howdadare Howdenni…’, Shanta Mallaiah’s ‘Nambikeyulla nayi saki…’ and ‘Gubbiyondu gudu katyaado…’

Speaking on the occasion, theatre person Vishweshwari Hiremutt said: “Rangayana Mysuru, by not limiting itself to only theatre activities and by giving opportunity to showcase other forms of arts in its premises, is creating a good platform to artistes.”

Stating that tatvapada was being written and sung to correct the wrongs in the society, Vishweshwari said that Santa Shishunala Sharifa and Kanakadasa stand in the forefront in contributing to the Tatvapada literature.

Rangayana Mysuru Director Addanda C. Cariappa, who too spoke, said that art and literature were developing because of senior folk singers. 

Mentioning that impressed by Ekatari Ramaiah, ekatari instruments were bought by Rangayana Mysuru, Cariappa said that people like Ekatari Ramaiah add to the richness of folk art in the State.

‘Controversies erupt if truth is spoken’

Defending his recent statement that nothing should be given free and drama should never be staged without entry fee, the Rangayana Mysuru Director said that one has to start giving false statements if speaking truth becomes controversy.
