M S Subbulakshmi - Songs Download

Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi known as M.S or M.S.Subbulakshmi was born in 1916 in the temple city of Madurai, Tamil Nadu, to Shanmukavadiver Ammal and Subramania Iyer. Initially she learned classical music from her mother and gave her first public performance reciting "bhajans" or Hindu hymns at the age of 13. Later started learning Carnatic music under the tutelage of Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer and in Hindustani music under Pandit Narayanrao Vyas.

With her rock-solid technique, sure tone, deep spirituality and splendid emotional expression, MS was rightfully considered an Indian national treasure during her lifetime. Thanks to a legion of great recordings, her place among the great vocalists of the 20th century is assured. One of her biggest hits was the "Venkateswara Suprabhatam" and she had willed the proceeds from its sales to the local Tirupati Balaji temple.

She has collected many awards including India's highest civilian honour the Bharat Ratna (the Jewel of India) and the Ramon Magsaysay award. Among her many awards were the Padma Bhushan in 1954 and the Sangeetha Kalanidhi in 1968; she was the first female artist to be awarded the latter title.

After her husband's death in 1997, Subbulakshmi withdrew from performing, and passed away in 2004.
