"Carnatic" is just a name to most. "Music of Karnataka" is etymology of little relevance, considering Madras has been the central hub for a long time...

Default Tamil Music Festivals (Thamil Isai Vilaakkal)
Author: Virarajendra

Tamil Music Festivals (Thamil Isai Vilaakkal)

In the present days we see many Music Festivals being held all over Tamil Nadu. Many of them are referred to as Tamil Music Festival” (Thamil Isai Vilaa). When we go to the venue of the "Thamil Isai Vilaa" the programmes are announced over Speakers as Carnatic Music ("Karnataka Isai" = Music of Karnataka) by a prominent - Singer, or Singers of Tamil Nadu with names given. Then when you sit - if the venue is a Hall, or stand - if the venue is an open air grounds or theatre and listen to the Singers, what is sung are "mostly" Telungu Keerththanaas.

The confusion is, are we justified in calling such Music Festival as Thamil Isai Vilaa instead of referring to them as the Dravidian Music Festival” (Thiraavida Isai Villa). Are we not misleading the "upcoming young Tamil generation" by this "wrong interpretation" of Thamil Isai Vilaa.

What is happening to the "Thamil Isai Iyakkam" commenced by Sir Raja Annaamalai Chettiaar of Tamil Nadu, to revive the "traditional Thamil Isai" nurtured and nourished over 2000 years by the great kings of Tamil Nadu the Cholas, Pandiyas, Cheras and others, which lost it's grounds with the cultural waves that struck Tamil Nadu during the period of Karnataka and Telungu rule.

Music is well beyond the barriers of language and should be appreciated by all whether it be Tamil, Malayaalam, Telungu, Kannadaa or Hindi. But what is stressed here is the "correct interpretation and practice" of "traditional Thamil Isai".

Will the great Musicians of Tamil Nadu revive the "traditional Thamil Issai" and elevate it to the pedestal of glory in Tamil Nadu, while appreciating the Music of the other sister languages of India.
