In this section, I present a huge collection of tyagaraja kritis rendered by various musicians as part of various concerts/LPs/cassettes spanning over 50 years. This was painstakingly collected by a gentleman and came into my hands. The concert details such as date and in some cases, the artist names are not listed. If you know them please post them on the archive's discussion forum.
