Tributes to India’s Carnatic music legend M.S. Subbulakshmi on her 103rd birth anniversary today.

M. S. Subbulakshmi, in the 100 years since her birth, has had an irreplaceable influence over classical musicians spanning across age, gender and borders. It was destined that the universal and the eternal quality of her musical oeuvre would immortalize her in the world of Indian classical music. Despite the charm that chartered her to the cinema world in the early 1930s and the conferment of prestigious awards like the Padma Bhushan when she was just 38, the aura of purity and devotion to tradition that she exuded went far beyond music.
