Telugu SystemWithoutTelugu

This massive uploading of nearly Annamacharya 15000 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.

Annamacharya Kirtanas: The text of kirtanas are given as html files - in Telugu Script so that you can download and read them quickly. The entire lot of kirtanas easily available- in our listing about 15000 - can be accessed through index files grouped by (1) kirtanas, or (2) ragas. The kirtanas have been grouped as per telugu alphabet using mysql.

Choose by kirtanas :: a-am, A-i , I-e, E-au, ka-gha, cha-gya, ta-da, na, pa-bha, ma, ya-ha. Or Choose using ragawise index — index files based on ragas.

Tyagaraja Kirtanas: You can browse by Kirtanas , ragas or talas for selecting the required kirtana.

Others : Muthuswamy Dikshitulu, Syama Sastry were contemporaries of Tyagaraja. List of Kirtanas of Muthuswamy Dikshitulu are given here. These will be uploaded once telugu kirtanas are segregated. Kirtanas of Syama Sastry are given here.

We intend to make audio files available in Ogg format gradually. Actually this compression is about same level as mp3 compression. The major advantages are (1) this is completely free from license-patent-trade mark restrictions, (2) it is [in our opinion] better technically- in copying, playing, editing and encoding. You can download, use these contents as per the terms of GNU GPL ver2.

Annamacharya is reported to have composed 32000 kirtanas. All of them are not available. We have processed the files available to us (about 15000) 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.
