CTU 2018 Utsava Sampradaya Krithis classes

Chicago Tyagaraja Utsavam is glad to announce that the regular monthly classes for teaching Utsava Sampradaya Krithis will be starting in Nov 2017.  This is being done so that new generations of children are properly trained to perform these Krithis during CTU events including the Utsava Abhivandanam function.  CTU children also get the opportunity to perform some of these Krithis before the USK procession held outdoors during the Memorial Day weekend each year.

The following songs will be taught this year.

New Songs

  • Meluko Dayanidhe, Sourashtram, Rupakam
  • Seetha Kalyana, Kurinji, Khanda Chapu
  • Koluvai yunnade – devagandhari-Adi
