But the great musician who systematized its teaching was sage Purandaradasa of Karnataka. He is often called "The Grand father of Carnatic music". During his time and immediately afterwards very many songs suitable for singing in Carnatic Ragas were written in Tamilnadu using Tamil. I have translated some of them in to English(341 songs) .
