Thyagaraja and Mozart were almost born in the same time, check here and here.
They lived seas apart at a time, when communication between places even as close as 10 kilometers to each other, was through horse carts and such.
Yet, you can recognize a lot of similarities in the music they have created.
Except, of course, Thyagaraja kicked some real serious ass during his lifetime ;-)
