Carnatic Classical Grand Vocal Concert featuring
The Compositions of Sri Shyama Shastri

Sri Shyama Shastri...

Born 26th April 1762 Died 6th February 1827

He was like Goddess Kamakshi's own child. Sri Shyama Shastri's fame as a musician spread widely. Rasikas of music recognised in him a complete musician who combined in his art the three vital limbs of Raga (melody), Bhava (Emotion) and Laya (Rhythm) as a composite whole. His piety, religiosity and spiritual stature were reflected in his personality which evoked respect and reverence in those who came into contact with him. Shyama Shastri was a person of handsome countenance. His mien exuded charm and grace. With the outward religious marks of devotion sparkling on his forehead, and possessing a majestic physical frame and a regal gait, he was the very picture of dignity and nobility. Though unostentatious, he dressed well, adorned appropriate jewellery and was fond of chewing betel, all of which added to his charismatic personality. The citizens of Tanjavur were in awe of him and the culturally conscious among them venerated him as a Maha Purusha.

Shyama Shastri predicted his own end. He passed away, fully conscious till the end, with his son chanting hymns into his ears. The end came on 6th February 1827. His wife had predeceased him by six days.
