Swapna Sundari….A Young South Indian Classical Music Diva
Last year, I was really blessed to get in touch with great and genius musician "Pranam Kamlakar Ji" and through him only I came to know about this fairly talented artist Swapna Sundari Ji. I heard Kamlakar Ji's new album "Bhavayami" teasers in Nov-Dec 2013 and I was totally in love with it's complete music and singer. Since then I had been waiting for it's release and eventually my wait was over on 24th January 2014 when album "Bhavayami" was launched by esteemed legends Suseelamma and S.P Balasubramanium Ji. Today I received "Bhavyami" CD, sent by Swapna Ji herself.
After listening the complete "Bhavayami" album, I am to completely out of this world and floating in some god's own land. I feel, It's really very difficult to explain the quality of Swapna's soulful singing into few words. What a magical, sacred and angelic voice!!!! Pure dedication, hard work and devotion truly reflects in her divine singing which is sanctified and remarkable. There are very few singers who represents and spread our culture through their singing and maintain the purity of indian classical music in the fusion too, Swapna Ji is undoubtedly one of them.
The listeners who love absolute devotional music with good sense of fusion music, Album "Bhavayami" is the best and precious for their collection. Bhavayami is the amazing blend of south indian classical music with western tracks and instruments. All Songs (bhajans) are based on classical ragas. It has 7 popular Sanskrit-Telgu devotional songs in indian classical fusion written by great poets of ancient times like Annamacharya, Lalitha Dasar and Jayadev. Each song (Bhajan) is beautifully composed, arranged by Genius "Pranam Kamlakhar" ji.
It really feels blessed when you listen such kind of honest and rare musicians who are less commercial and delivers heart wrenching and captivative melodies. All Songs (Bhajans) Bhavayami, Mayamohamu, Pavanaguru, Rammanave, Sharnu Sharnu, Yehimurare and Palukutenela are very godly pleasing and has their own flavours with stupendous instrumental experiments.
