Navagraha Kritis by Bombay Jayashri and her students
The Navagraha Kritis of Muthuswamy Dikshitar, glorify the nine planets. These strikingly beautiful compositions describe the astronomy of these planets elegantly and contain the essence of jyotisa (science of astrology) and mantra shastra (Vedic texts).
This app contains kritis on Surya, Candra, Angaraka, Budha, Brhaspati, Sukra and Sani sung by the renowned Carnatic singer, Bombay Jayashri along with her students. It does not contain kritis on the 'inauspicious' planets Rahu and Ketu as they are now not considered to be by Muthuswamy Dikshitar but were later compositions by his followers, added to round out the traditional nine.
Bombay Jayashri is a renowned Carnatic music vocalist and has been nominated for an Oscar this year for her song in the film 'Life of Pi'.
