Light Songs - Real Vintage Stuff!

Shravanam with light songs!

Here are two songs of real vintage value.
Can you believe Sri M S Rama Rao of Sundarakanda fame singing a Qawwali style song?
Here it is!
Note that the charanams are sung without the rhythm.

Sri M S Rama Rao - Talupu Mooyakane

Here is another gem by the one and only RBS!
It is also about a Talupu!

Smt Rao Bala Saraswati - Talupu Teeyunantalona

Let us enjoy some great songs!!

Were not all the padams, jAvaLis, etc prior to the period of Thyagaraja, Muthuswami dIkshitar and syAmA Sastri, composed in such vulgar language. Just to cover up the vulgarity name of God is introduced as in the second song. These were mainly used by dancing girls. These are similar to the dance/ songs in movies nowadays.
