Smt. Jayalakshmi & Smt. Rajalakshmi hail from the musically famous Sulamangalam village in Tanjore District. Both the sisters had their training in Carnatic music under the guidance of Sri Pathamadai Krishna Iyer. The knowledge of the Carnatic Music and the mellifluos voice enabled them to receive their recognition among the public in a short span of time.
The devotional songs to Lord Muruga have also been sung in films and have become very popular with the audience. The selection on this LP truly transmits the feeling of Divine ecstacy and come from songs that were previously released on 78 rpm records.
Hope you like it, and if you do, don't forget to check the extra link below!
Also do remember to come back in a few days as there will be at least one more album by the sisters and much more Carnatic music. Both classical and devotional especially as they often are one and the same ;-)
Another good thing about blogging is the sudden stirs in the collective soul, that atman synchronicity if you like, giving you the feeling that somehow we are connected. A friend in music who keeps a most wonderous blog has just posted another LP by the sisters. I suggest you go check that out as well! Do you remeber "twofers", two LP's on one? Well you can consider this posts one of those "twofers" if you step over to Ghostcapital and check out this one:
