Subbarama Dikshitar

Subbarama Dikshitar (1839-1906) was a Carnatic music composer. He was the grandson of Baluswami Dikshitar, a brother of Muthuswami Dikshitar. He was a great composer in his own right, but is more famous for his Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini, a book detailing the works of Muthuswami Dikshitar and a reference on many other Carnatic musical concepts.

Baluswami Dikshitar, a great musician, was at the court of Ettayapuram kings. He adopted Subbarama Dikshitar as his own son and taught music to him. Subbarama Dikshitar began composing at the age of seventeen and became the court musician of the Ettayapuram kings at the age of nineteen. He composed many kritis, varnams, etc.

Subbarama Dikshitar at the age of 60 began writing the book Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini and completed it after four years of hard work. But before the book was printed Subbarama Dikshitar died at a relatively young age of 67.
