BhadrAcala rAmadAsu keertanalu

 

praSasti

 

kancerla gOpanna (alias Bhadrachala Ramadasu, CE 1620-80?) is one of the most popular personalities in Telugu history, music and literature. There is hardly anyone in telugu nADu that never heard his songs. Many people, from scholars to beggars know some of them. They are known for their superb lyrical quality and BhAvaucityam. For more on the musical qualities, please look into the Carnatic music webring(s). His dASarathee Satakam has also been an extremely popular Satakam. Many old timers know several poems of the Satakam by heart.

 

The following songs are in RIT/RTS format. For the songs in Telugu Lipi font, click here.

Note: The tALaM indicated below is as per the songs sung by mangaLaMpalli bAlamuraLee kRShNa and S.P. Balasubramanyam.
