Tanjore        


Tanjore was considered the seat of Carntic Music and Dance for many years. It is here that the music of the most illustious Trinity of South Indian Music flourished. The Trinity included Tyagaraj , the great singer and poet (1800-1850) composed and sang his 2000 songs immortal songs moslty in Telugu, Muthuswami Dikshitar (1776 - 1835 A.D.), the youngest of the Trinity (wrote about 300 compositions in sanskrit) and Syama Shastri (1762-1827 AD), who wrote about 300 compositions in Sanskrit and Telugu.

Many of the Kings and Princes of Cochin and Travancore were excellent musicians and one of them was Swati Tirunal (1813-1847) who was perhaps the most brilliant composer with his compositions ranging in six different languages; Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Malyalam, Hindustani and Marathi. Thus there are many other such great composers in the post -trinity period who were proficient in this art and there is a treasure of beautiful compositions which are being and to be explored and danced.
