The title of ‘Isai Peraringar’ was conferred upon renowned Carnatic vocalist Sanjay Subrahmanyan at the 74th annual festival of the Tamil Isai Sangam here at the Rajah Annamalai Mandram on Wednesday.
Meghalaya Governor V. Shanmuganathan, who conferred the title, said that Tamil Isai is not just sound, words, raga, alapana or tala, but something beyond that. Mr. Shanmuganathan also conferred the title of ‘Pann Isai Perarignar’ on P. Shanmugasundara Desigar. The sangam president P.R. Gokulakrishnan and honorary secretary A.C. Muthiah also spoke at the event, followed by Seerkazhi G. Sivachidambaram’s concert.
