Saint Tyagaraja Aradhana, 2024
Feb 17th (Sat) to Feb 18th (Sun)

Tyagaraja Aradhana is observed every year by artists, gurus, students, and connoisseurs of Carnatic music around the world. On this day homage is paid to the great saint composer Tyagaraja (1767-1847). Saint Tyagaraja composed thousands of kritis majorly in Telugu and also in Sanskrit in invocation and praise of Lord Shree Rama. 

Pushya Bahula Panchami, his Samadhi day is commemorated every year by group singing of five of his Pancharatna compositions (five gems) in his honor. Typically, this group singing is preceded by individual renditions of Tyagaraja kritis by students of Carnatic music.
