K.B. Sundarambal | Kalathil Azhiyatha Kaviyam

Get this unimpeachably great record here.

I've got a lot to say about this album, or at least about all of the south Indian cinema related CDs I picked up at a certain media store on 74th Street in Jackson Heights a month or two ago, but I've got to finish getting ready for work so I can get in early. Born Kodumudi Balambal Sundarambal in 1908 in Erode, Tamil Nadu, the "Queen of the Indian Stage" was a legend in south India. She was also active in the independence movement and the first Indian film star to enter state legislature.

Expect more from this region in the coming days; I've gotta go pack my lunch.
