Padam as a musical form was perfected in 17th century. In the earlier days, the term pada was used to denote any devotional song, but now it stands for a particular form of music rendered at a very slow pace. The lyrics are highly romantic in nature. Telugu padams are usually in praise of Krishna, whereas Tamil padams are in praise of Subramanya. Padams are beautiful, scholarly compositions in weighty, classical ragas. Though they belong to the dance repertoire, they are often sung in Carnatic concerts because of the high musical content. The emotional aspects in a Padam make it a perfect piece for the dancer to do Abhinaya (facial expression of emotions). Swati Tirunal (1813-1847) an erstwhile ruler of princely state of Travancore (India) and a great composer made significant contributions to music and dance. Swati Tirunal gave Mohiniyattam, the classical female dance-tradition of Kerala a new dimension through specially written padams (lyrics), which later became popular as Swatipadams. This album presents padams of Swati Tirunal set to novel background score music by M.Jayachandran and perfectly sung in the traditional style by K.S.Chithra. Some popular padams in this album are Aliveni, Poonthen, Tharunee, Kantha thava, and Panimathi. Many point this as a reference manual for Padams for its music and rendition
