Suprabhatam : sacred music of South India

Suprabhatam (सुप्रभातम in Sanskrit or ‘auspicious dawn‘ in English) is the name given to Sanskrit hymns recited in the morning to awaken the Lord. The rendition by M S Subbulakshmi can be heard in many Kannada, Tamil and Telugu homes each morning. Suprabhatams by M S Subbulakshmi, perhaps the most essential songs anywhere in the world, is staple music to the Hindu people of South India. If you don’t have them, then you must be a non believer.
