It is another great loss to the Carnatic music world as Kalpagam Swaminathan passed away yesterday. Her playing had such a depth and profound emotional intensity. I know it will always live on with us.

You can even listen to some of her renditions taken by other music masters and students on youtube. One example is this beautiful rendition in Surutti (a simply divine ragam).
