Kurai Onrum Illai – MS: A Life in Music

14th December 2017 @ 10:00 am - 22nd December 2017 @ 5:00 pm


Kurai Onrum Illai MS: A Life in Music December 2017 IGNCA’s exhibition ‘Kurai Onrum Illai, MS: Life in Music’ travels to five cities: Varanasi, Guwahati, Goa, Vadodara and Ranchi. Concept Note: Bharat Ratna M S Subbulakshmi is an iconic musician, a singer par excellence, known not merely for her voice, but for the emotion she puts into music. She is the first ever musician to be conferred the highest civilian order Bharat Ratna. She is also the first Indian musician to win the Magsaysay award. She was also the first Indian to sing at the UN General Assembly. There are three distinct phases/aspects to the life and music of MS, as she was fondly called. • She was one of the earliest female actresses to enter the film world. When she acted in her first film, she was all of 22. • Her contribution to popularizing Hindu hymns and bhajans is unmatched. She introduced to southern India the world of Meera Bhajans and Hanuman chalisa. There is hardly a Hindu household in south India where her Venkatesa Suprabatham is not played. MS also participated in the freedom struggle through music. She along with other towering female singers in the south like D K Pattammal, M L Vasanthakumari and Vasantha kokilam sang patriotic songs penned by such eminent poets as Bharatiyar, Papanasam Sivan, and Kalki. It made a huge impact on the freedom movement by stoking the nationalist sentiments.
