Carnatic Music Idol
Carnatic Music Idol was started by the Jaya TV last year. I found a series of about 20 videos on youtube. I am only embedding the first video, and pasting the playlist link for whole set. These videos are in Tamil, you can understand some of it with your telugu knowledge and the most of it with knowledge in carnatic music.
Hope this will enhance the allure of Carnatic Music in India. More importantly, hope something similar will be done in A.P. as well, where there is much more a need for encouragement.
