Swarajathi – Rara Venu (Male Voice)
Swarajathis are pleasing melodies and more sophisticated than Geeethams. These are songs are very popular with early learners and children as they are very lively in their rendition. They have a Pallavi and a few Charanams. The Charanams are generally rendered once as Swaras and the second time as lyrics. Some Swarajatis also have an Anupallavi incorporated in them. Many Swarajatis like the sublimely devotional of Shyama Shastri are concert worthy. These compositions are very suitable for Bharathanatyam too. Raravenu is a very popular and lilting Swarajathi in Raga Bilahari set to Adi Tala. The devotee says “Please come my Lord Venugopala, the embodiment of adorable and victorious qualities”
