TV teams need some education please!

Last week, Vijay TV telecast a special program dedicated to Bharat Ratna M.S.Subbulakshmi.  

One song “Jo Achutananda” was sung by Shravan and it was in KHANDA CHAPU TALAM. 

A close up shot was shown of a rasika who was blissfully nodding her head and keeping the ADI TALAM!  The camera specially focused on the hand as the rasika kept the eight counts of Adi talam! 

Wish those who edit such TV programs at least equip themselves on some of the basics of Karnatic music or take the help of some knowledgeable person!

  1. I agree completely! I would also like to add that what we need on the radio and TV are NOT programs on Carnatic music; rather, what we would like to hear more is Carnatic music per se!
