Jai devi saraswathi - Bhajan

Lyrics & Chords

This is a song that one of my seniors @ school sang for a competition. She had a brilliant beautiful voice and I don’t know where she is. By singing this, I remember my school music teachers Muthulakshmi Mam and Sridevi Padmanabhan Mam and Padma, the singer. I learnt it by listening to Padma sing this song. Unfortunately, did not write down the lyrics then so the lyrics could be wrong.

Due to problems with recording (it stopped in the middle), I had to record it as four tracks and mix it. So, there is an obvious break at places and I have gone off the shruti at a couple of places. Please excuse those and other flaws.

Thanks Sudha for mentioning a Bhajan and here it goes. This is for you.

Very nice, Uthra! Nice to hear this soother raag! Thanks to you for singing a bhajan at my request. There were some unsure notes – yes, but loved it! Try doing this again in a single take when you get some free time (LOLs), with some beat…
5 for you,
-Sudha

Uthra, Excellent rendering of a good composition. The song brings out a very serene, plesant mood of Kalayani raag.
a few occasional offs here and there-you would know by now.
Enjoyed your singing very much!
