In memory of K.B.S

This was the mail from Mr. Yessel Narasimhan to Sangeethapriya group:

Dear All
Smt. Kodumudi Balambal Sundarambal aka KBS passed away this date in 1980 - a rare star in Thamizh music and cinema galaxy. The 1st women artiste to be paid a lakh of rupees - for her role as avaiyAr in the film on the legendary Thamizh poet, scholar, philosopher.

Most of would not have heard her sing kritis in languages other than Thamizh.

I wish offer my respects to KBS and her music through this track recorded during the Kanda Shasti festival at Devakottai in 1969.

Listen to a Bhadrachala rAmadass keerthan in mOhanam and her khAmbhOji rAga AlApanA uploaded 

I am sharing with you and please enjoy.
