People from all over the world come to Chennai in the Tamil month of Margazhi (Dec 15 to Jan 15) to experience the music that mingles with the chill and mist in the air. Hundreds of concerts everyday for 30 days makes the Chennai music festival one of a kind in the world. Bombay Jayashri and T.M. Krishna come together in Margazhi Raagam to take this Chennai magic all over the world. Conceived and directed by Jayendra, with cinematography by P.C. Sreeram and audiography by H. Sridhar, this 110 minutes concert is set to change audience perception of live concerts, and open their eyes to a new musical experience. This concert, to be released in digital cinemas across the world, is sure to take Carnatic music beyond the conventional classical music audiences and reach people who love music from different cultures across the globe.
Margazhi Raagam - a joint venture of Aghal Films and Real ImageAghal Films spontaneously decided to take Jayendra’s concept of Concert in Cinema forward. The idea was to give Carnatic music an evocative visual appeal and the sound quality that the music deserves. Using the latest high end, 4k RED Digital Cinema Camera in a seven camera shoot, digitally recording sound on Protools, editing on Avid systems, confirming and colour correcting on Digital Vision tools, mixing the sound in Media Artists - a THX certified stage, Real Image has put an array of technologies to use to make Margazhi Raagam a one of a kind musical experience.

Interesting website regarding the Marghazi Raagam festival! Next time I am in India around that time, I will definitely have to attend one of those concerts!
My favorite raagam is Hindolam; and the song Samajavaragamana specifically!
