D K Pattammal

I never got a chance to listen to her in person, although did get to see her on the TV.

Most of the recordings I have here are with D K Jayaraman singing with her and barring a couple I believe it is Palghat Mani Iyer on the mridangam.

Clearly she had her favorites in nAyaki, dhanyAsi, manirangu etc – which you can see being sung in many of her concerts. And she certainly sets the marker for the Muttuswamy Deekshitar compositions. My favorite is the RTP in jaganmOhini which is a fantastic rendering on multiple fronts. I remember an article in Sruti (circa 2016) which was a complete analysis of this specific rendering and the author goes about describing each section of that rendering specially relating to the talam and gati variations. Will try to locate and add that information here.
