Songs of Purandara Dasa:
Purandara Dasa's songs are popular both in Hindustani and Carnatic music. The foremost Hindustani musician teacher of Tansen, Swami Haridas was Purandara Dasa's disciple. Purandara Dasa was the first composer to include comments on ordinary life in song compositions. He used elements of colloquial language for his lyrics. He introduced folk ragas into the mainstream, setting his lyrics to tunes/ragas of his day so that even a common man could learn and sing them. According to traditional sources his compositions number as many as four lac and seventy five thousand. But not more than 700 compositions are accessible now.(Source: Wikipedia) In this course, we aim to preserve the legacy and pay our tributes to the legendary compositions of Purandara Dasa.
