Krishna Leela

Compositions of Smt. Ambujam Krishna
Live at Music Academy
by Smt.Vishakha Hari


“Krishna Leela” by Smt.Vishakha Hari, one of the leading and very popular Harikatha exponents, presents some of the divine sports of the transcendental child Krishna. Beginning with the Avathara of the Lord she proceeds to the Damodara leela and Brahma Mohana leela, where the Lord’s omnipotence and omnipresence is brought out wonderfully with apt narrations. The program concludes with the evergreen Rukmini Kalyanam wherein the Jeevathma attains the Paramathma through the intermediary – Guru. This album is a feast for the devotees of Lord Krishna and the rasikas of music. Krishnakatha is divine. Music is Divine. Mixing the nectar of His Divine name with the nectar of music is indeed the most inexplicable bliss says Thyagaraja Swami in his song Intha soukhya. This album is an effort to provide a sample from that bliss.

Smt.Ambujam Krishna is a prolific composer whose deep devotion has taken the form of beautiful songs, which have been aesthetically tuned by great stalwarts in the field of carnatic music. She has composed in several languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Smt.Vishakha Hari combines her exquisite story telling with spellbinding music selecting some of the best compositions of Ambujam Krishna through the theme “ Krishna Leela”. Smt. Vishakha Hari is the daughter-in-law of Paranur Mahatma Sri Sri Krishna Premi swamigal, who is also her spiritual Guru and the disciple of Padma Bhushan awardee Sri. Lalgudi G. Jayaraman. She is an accomplished A-grade artist of All India Radio with number of honours to her name.

She has been accompanied by Sri B.Ananthakrishnan on the violin who is noted for his shruthi sudhdham in his bowing. On the mrudangam is the most sought after Sri Arjun ganesh whose spectacular playing has brought instantaneous audience appreciation. On the ghatam is Sri Trichy Murali who plays for all top ranking musicians and is conspicuous by his sonorous and knowledgeable playing.
