Kirtanas

Telugu SystemWithoutTelugu

This massive uploading of nearly 15000 Annamacharya kirtanas and nearly 1000 other kirtanas was possible only because of availability of linux, and free software tools in linux such as mysql, sed, awk, apache2 web server, linuxtools, bash shell scripts, script, gzip, tar, audacity, ogg/flac formats, tex software. These enabled us to do this work inexpensively and make it possible to offer them for free download in advertisement-free forum. We have large number of books and large number of audio files whose copyright position is not clear. This directory will be expanded once we are able to obtain permission to use them or clarify position re: licensing.

The text of kirtanas are given as html files - in Telugu Script so that you can download and read them quickly.The kirtanas have been grouped as per telugu alphabet using earlier free versions of mysql.You can download, use these contents as per the terms of GNU GPL ver2.

Annamacharya: The entire lot of kirtanas easily available- about 15000 - Annamacharya kirtanas can be accessed through this index file.

Tyagaraja: The kirtanas of Tyagaraja - (nearly 800) can be accessed through this index file.

Others: Syama Sastry: The Telugu kirtanas of Syama Sastry can be accessed through this index file.

Others: Ramadasu: The kirtanas of Kancherla Gopanna - also known as Ramadasu- can be accessed through this index file.

We intend to make audio files available in Ogg format gradually.

We have processed the files available to us (about 15000-Annamaiah+ about 900- Tyagaraja/others) using RTS transliteration. So mistakes in vattulu (ba-bha, da-dha),/bindu/ardhabindu could have escaped our notice. We will be thankful if you can inform of us of any such mistakes. Your cooperation will enable us rectify such mistakes. Our contact address: gbsubrahmanyamATgmailDOTcom.
