Welcome to the home page of Tyagaraja Aradhana Trust.
A carnatic music sabha based in Calicut, Kerala.
The year 2011 marks the 31st consecutive year of the Tyagaraja Aradhana Trust’s celebration of one of the greatest vaggeyakaras (lyricist/musician/composer) in carnatic music, Sri Tyagaraja. Musicians from both within Kerala and outside eagerly take part in the festival since it started in 1981.
We dedicate this site and our endeavours to all our gurus without who we would not be here.

We recall with pride and gratitude the keen involvement and grand concerts of great stalwarts of the past and their memorable performances in houseful halls.
Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, the Bhishmacharya of Carnatic music was our guiding spirit and has given performances continuously for 12 years in our venue. Semmangudi Mama has helped in creating an atmosphere like the one held in Tiruvaiyaru with a similar pattern and following the same traditions.
We have also had the privilege of having Sri R.K. Venkitaramana Sastri who performs poojas at Tiruvaiyaru leading poojas at our Calicut Tyagaraja Utsavam.
Sri Tiruvengadu Jayaraman has also conducted poojas here besides at Tiruvaiyaru. We continue to be enthralled by his music even today.
The members and rasikas of Tyagaraja Aradhana Trust feel blessed by the presence of all the musicians.
