Sangita Sampradaya Pradarsini
The Sangita Sampradaya Pradarsini of Subbarama Dikshitar is a valuable text on South Indian Musicology.It was published in Telugu in the year, 1904. It contains sections on musicology, biographies of composers and short descriptions of the ragas of South Indian music that follow the scheme established by Venkatamakhin and his descendants and followers.It also has notated compositions to illustrate these ragas. It celebrated 100 years of its publication in the year 2004.To commemorate the event, we generated an English version of this work. The English web edition is based on the original Telugu version and includes all the Gamaka symbols (ornamentations) and Svara notations as given in the original Edition. We have also given here the Vaggeyakara Caritamu or the Biographical accounts of Composers.
