Gnanamayam’s Tamil wing called ‘Thamil Muzakkam’ was launched on 15-11-2020 in London with Singer Manickam Yogeswaran as the chief guest. Mr Yogeswaran has done a great service to Tamil Language by singing Tirukkural in 133 Ragas. He explained that he selected the first and last couplet from each of the 133 chapters in Tirukkural and sang in different Ragas. He was motivated into this by London solicitor Mr Yogarajah and other London friends. His second achievement was singing for a Hollywood film.  Though he has done lots of new things he stands out for his contribution to Tamil in the areas of Holly Wood and Tirukkural.

Mr Yogeswaran sang the first ten couplets from the first Adhikara/ chapter of Tamil Veda Tirukkural.

He stressed the need of putting Tamil verses in good ragas. Setting Tamil songs to music helps the children to learn them quickly and remember them for ever.

He would like to sing all the 1330 couplets of Kural in future and Avvaiyar’s Athichudi (aathichuudi).

Mr and Mrs Yogaraja of London were present.

London Swaminathan, Producer of Gnanamayam and Thamil Muzakkam requested him to be part of Bharati Memorial Centenary Project.

What is Bharati Project?

Bharati’s 100th death anniversary falls in 2021. The great poet died on 11 September 1921. To commemorate his memory Gnanamayam wants all singers, musicians to set Bharati’s songs in new Ragas, particularly that ones not became popular till this day. Gnanamayam’s Tamil wing Thamil Muzakkam (Thamil Muzakkam is taken from Bharatiyar’s song) would like to highlight at least 54 songs from December 11,2020, the birthday of Bharati.

Please contact us if you can be part of this project.
