Chembai - Recordings


Chembai with Semmangudi and Chowdiah (joint concert)

Sound bytes securely locked into the grooves of records and the spools and stretches of magnetic tape make it possible for us to listen to the music of many of the performances of the past.

Unlike many musicians, who were born at the turn of the 20th century, Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar has left us a large legacy.

In the early nineteen thirties, when he was a super star, recording companies chased him with contracts and managed to capture and circulate his music on circular sheets of shellac.

The first disc he cut, to use trade parlance, contained a ragamalika rendering of an arutpa of Ramalingaswamy. The ragas used were Kalyani, Dhanyasi, Kedaragoula, Kapi and Surati. The disc music created a sensation.

Several other recordings which followed all helped to enhance the reputation of Chembai as a singing star with a superb voice.

Among these a kutcheri set - a series of discs which, when played in sequence, constituted a mini-concert with abridged presentations of alapana, kritis, etc.

In 1946, Chembai recorded a selection of songs for which the lyrics had been written by his friend T.G.Krishna lyer and he himself had composed the music

Later he added two long-play records to the discography.

In recent times, recording companies have been releasing pre-recorded cassettes containing excerpts from live concerts. One of the cassettes, an All India Radio release of a national programme recorded in 1971. It is distributed under the HMV banner. Another HMV cassette offers songs from an LP released earlier.

There is news that the following recordings of Chembai are available in the hands of private collectors:
