வசந்த காலக் குயிலிசை - அது வசந்தகோகிலத்தின் இசை !
N C VASANTHAKOKILAM (Nagappattinam Chandrashekar Vasanthakokilam), a name that the music lovers of earlier generation would still remember! Not to forget that she was a contemporary of our great veteran singer M S SUBBULAKSHMI! Though N C V was in the field for a short period her contributions to the music world is commendable. Some of her famous songs were "Yen Palli Kondeerayya" in Mohanam, "Thandhai Thai Irundhal" in Shanmugapriya, etc. The fact that she lived for only a short period is a loss for the music world! This page is just a humble outcome of my love for music and a small tribute to the veteran artist, for all the wonderful renderings of her!
Down you may find and enjoy a video of a song from an old tamil film titled "Krishna Vijayam", sung by the great artist N.C.VASANTHAKOKILAM !
