IMPORTANT COPYRIGHT NOTICE: This web page has older concert snippets of alapana, swarakalpana, neraval, ragam-tanam-pallavi (RTP) and viruttam. The rightful copyright owners are the artistes and their accompanyists in the concerts whom I have great reverence and respect for. I have not taken these snippets from any commercially available recording (and it should not infringe on their sales). On the contrary, I expect that the sampling of good music and deeper musical knowledge should lead to increase in concert attendances and cassette/CD sales. Also most of these snippets are from old concerts (eg: 1950s-1970s); however, there might be some open issues (copyrights may last for 60 years). My sole intention is to provide this as a CONVENIENT REFERENCE and EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE for music students and rasikas alike. These snippets are NOT for sale. If you perceive a copyright violation problem that the original artistes' are concerned about, please inform me by email and I will immediately remove those references from the web page.
