Syama Sastry (1762-1827)

Syamasastry lived in Tanjavur of Tamilnadu. He was a great devotee of the Goddess Bangaru Kamakshi. He learnt music from Sangeetaswami and then from Pachimiriam Adiappaiayyar.

While in Tanjavur, he composed many krutis on his favorite deity, Kamakshi. He moved to Madurai, where he composed very popular krutis in praise of the goddess Meenakshi. Most of his songs are in Telugu, though a few are in Sanskrit and Tamil. He is well known for his sweet songs in Ananda Bhairavi.

Syamasastry, Deekshitar, and Tyagaraja, who are known as the Trinity of Karnatic Music, revitalized the art form with their valuable and everlasting contributions.
