Muthuswami Dikshitar
Muthuswami Dikshita (Mudduswamy Dikshitar)[1](IAST: muttusvāmi dīkṣita, 24 March 1775 – 21 October 1835), mononymously Dikshitar[a], was a South Indian poet, singer and veena player, and a legendary composer of Indian classical music, who is considered one of the musical trinity of Carnatic music. Muthuswami Dikshitar was born on 24 March 1775 in Tiruvarur near Thanjavur in what is now the state of Tamil Nadu in India to a Kannada brahmin family (Hoysala Karnataka). His compositions, of which around 500 are commonly known, are noted for their elaborate and poetic descriptions of Hindu gods and temples and for capturing the essence of the raga forms through the vainika (veena) style that emphasises gamakas. They are typically in a slower speed (chowka kala). He is also known by his signature name of Guruguha which is also his mudra (and can be found in each of his songs). His compositions are widely sung and played in classical concerts of Carnatic music.
