Raga Kedaram

Tala AAdhi

 

Pallavi

Gana nayagan thunai yaguvaan,

Gandharwa veda sangeetham pada

 

 

Anupallavi

 

Phani raja kankana pani- Sankara,

Thanaya mangala karaka

 

 

Charanam

 

AAdhara sruthi neengamale,

Anniyargal pani varamale,

Kedara ragam Gambheera ragam,

Ketta pinnar mayai ongamale

 

 

English translation

 

Pallavi

 

For singing the Gandharava Veda music,

The lord of music would help me.

 

Anupallavi

 

He who wears the king of serpents as armlet,

Who does auspicious acts to son of Shiva.

 

Charanam

 

Without the basic sruthi slipping away,

Not imitating the style of any other stranger,

The regal raga, the Kedara raga,

Once heard would remove all illusions.
