Dr. K. J. Yesudas is far more widely known as a pop crooner of the Malayalam film industry. Born a Christian, Yesudass has participated in many Hindu ceremonies, including the annual Tyagaraja Aradhana, a celebration of the 19th century composer Tyagaraja. His Karnatak performances are up to the highest musical standards, as these recordings demonstrate.
Dr. Yesudas also has a web site of his own.
Accompanying Yesudas are E.K. Thyagarajan on violin, Tanjore Upendran on mridangam and T. Radhakrishnan on Ghatam.
