Legendary Kannada Sugama Sangeetha singer C Aswath has passed away this morning (29-dec-1939-29-12-2009) creating a big void in Kannada Music world.

His voice is still ringing in our hears. His style of singing Bhaavegeete (Expressive poetry) and Janapada Geete (Flok songs)  always used captivate his listeners. He took the poems of our greatest poets to common people. Santa Shishunala Sharif’s composition is one of his classical works. Its unimaginable to think that, his work can now only be listened to/seen on tapes and videos and there won’t be any more energetic performances by this legend on stage.

He entered Kannada Film industry through “Kaakana Kote” movie. Here is a song from that movie.

Santa ShishunaaLa Sharif’s favorite song: Kodagaana Koli nungitta.
