Here I hesitantly begin A Nattakuriinji Alaapana but tend to an early elaborate thaanam. It was recorded on a midicorder. Naatakurinji is significantly specially Karnaatik Raagam with no real Hindusthani equivalent . The real magic of Naataklurinji was revealed to me by Sri Karaikurichi Arunachalam. Semmangudi Srinivaasa Iyer, Pudukode Krishnamoorthy Lalgudi Jayaraman etc have revealed subtle nuances of this Ragam to me. The eighth Navaraathri Mandapom Annual Concert in Thiruvananthapuram the Ragam Thaanam Pallavi is in Naattakurinji.
