Watch: A centenary tribute to DK Pattammal

Author Gowri Ramnarayan anchored a session on Her Music Her Life: A centenary tribute to DK Pattammal, a decade since the passing of the musical doyen. It featured thespian and scholar Akhila Ramnarayan and Carnatic vocalist Nisha Rajagopal.

Pattammal shared Subramania Bharathiyar’s vision of India as a single, whole, united nation, and his pride in Indian culture, said Ms.Ramnarayan, as the soft strains of ‘Jaya Jaya Vande Mataram’ ensue. Her signature song, ‘Shanti Nilava Vendum’, was about Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of world peace. Pattammal urged people to exercise their right to vote with her recordings played in public spaces.
