Light and Devotional Songs


Light and devotional songs capture the quintessence of a region and the aesthetics of its people, giving expression to their thoughts and philosophy.

In retrospect, one cannot trivialize the contributions of All India Radio in instilling a taste for Light music, particularly among Keralites. Before the proliferation of satellite channels, up until the early 21st century, light songs composed by K. Raghavan, M.G. Radhakrishnan and such legendary composers used to resonate in Malayali homes through Akashvani. Similarly, devotional songs have always been a part and parcel of Indian musical heritage. Kerala, with its rich religious diversity, has always stayed secular in appreciating the musicality of devotional songs of all customs and beliefs.

Light music imparts sophistication through its simplicity. The composition itself need not be light to sing, depending upon the intricacy of the tune and other elements infused. Light songs are mostly poetry driven and their thematics cover philosophy, nature, romance, ethnicity, and spirituality.

Devotional songs, communicate the “Bhakthi Rasa” in various expressions of prayer such as praising, pleading, hailing, and celebrating the divine. The distinctive tune and semantic content encapsulate the flavor of different belief systems. The meaning of the lyrics revolves around religious devotion. However, from a strictly musical perspective, devotional music pacify your mind and the lyrics serve to further revitalize the music both emotionally and intellectually.

Light music is peculiarly distinctive as it is rich in poetry and melody. Singing these songs is a good exercise to unveil your potency of vocal expression from low to high registers so that the sweetness of the melody is retained and the grandeur of the poetry is escalated.  As a singer, it is important to understand, acknowledge and appreciate the characteristics of different cultural and religious styles of music.  Devotional songs are a compendium of these cultural nuances. Learning these songs would serve as a reference library at a later stage when you have to sing film songs with religious texture and tune.
