Remembering Shri D.K. Jayaraman

Music is the shorthand of emotion said Leo Tolstoy. Shri D.K.Jayaraman epitomized this. Some of his song renditions simply move me to tears whenever I hear them. His concerts, especially with Shri M.S. Gopalakrishnan and Shri Umayalpuram K. Sivaraman, were extraordinary.

Remembering the legend on his birthday.
