B R Chaya - Musical evening

Saturday 24th September 2016

We started off from home at 5 pm to reach The Indian Instirute of World Culture at BasavanaGudi, we could reach the venue on at 7pm due to heavy traffic on the way. 

However, we could enjoy half the program, as there was no big crowd and there was select audience,

‘Nightingale of Karnataka’ as she is affectionately called by the musicians and the music lovers of Karnataka-B.R.Chaya, is the most successful and leading singer, who has a rare distinction of having sung maximum Kannada songs to her credit.

Her first song ‘hindusthaanavu endoo mareyada…’ brought her instant fame and appreciation and awards. Chaya since then never looked back.

B.R.Chaya has so far sung in more than 300 films. She has the rare distinction of singing more than 15000 non-filmy songs which include Kannada bhaavageethe, jaanapada geethe, Kannada patriotic songs,nursery rhymes and innumerable devotional songs in various languages viz Kannada,tulu, Konkani,Tamil,Telugu,dakkhani, kodava etc. for ‘T-series, lahari,HMV,Jhankar, ashwini,sangeetha’ etc etc audio companies.

B R Chaya sang quite a few popular Kannada filmy and Bhavageethe yesterday, Mr Srinivas giving her male voice for duet songs. The background music was Karaoke and her husband Padmapani Jodidar was compering the show with some jokes in between.

Good evening spent except for boring traffic issue.
