Tallapaka Annamacharya (or Annamayya) (Telugu: శ్రీ తాళ్ళపాక అన్నమాచార్య)(May 9, 1408 – February 23, 1503) is a Hindu saint of the 15th century and the earliest known Indian musician to compose songs called sankirtanas in praise of Venkateswara, the deity of Seven Hills in Tirumala, India where unbroken worship has been offered for over 12 centuries.The musical form of the keertana songs that he composed, which are still popular among Carnatic music concert artists, have strongly influenced the structure of Carnatic music compositions. Sri Annamacharya is remembered for his saintly life, and is honoured as a great Bhakta/devotee of Bhagwaan Govinda by devotees and saintly singers.
He is believed to have been the reincarnation of the precious sword of Vishnu (Nandakam). He is widely regarded as the Andhra Pada kavita Pitamaha (grand old man of Telugu song-writing).
Annamacharya is said to have composed as many as 36,000 sankeertanas (songs) on Bhagwaan Govinda Venkateswara, of which only about 12,000 are available today.
Annamacharya considered his compositions as floral offerings to Bhagwaan Govinda. In the poems, he praises Venkateswara, describes his love for him, argues and quarrels with the Lord, confesses the devotee's failures and apprehensions, and surrenders himself to Venkateshwara. His songs are classified into the Adhyaatma (spiritual) and Sringaara (romantic) sankeertanas genres. His songs in the "Sringaara" genre worship Bhagwaan Venkateswara by describing the amorous and romantic adventures of Venkateswara and Alamel Manga, while others describe the Bhakti of his devotees.

Telugu is a Dravidian language spoken mainly in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, where it is an official language. Telugu is also spoken by significant minorities in the states of Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, and in Yanam, and in the union territory of Pondicherry. Andhra Pradesh's culture is widely know for its cultural art and music. Thus Telugu songs are a big hit among all the Andhra and Telugu speaking population. Contributions of Annamacharya and Tyagaraja to the "grammar of sound" made Telugu language the preferred language of composition for Carnatic Music and made Andhra Pradesh the mother of all modern music. The influence of Telugu Songs and music can be felt not only on Carnatic but global classical music and as a medium of emotional resonance has no parallel in human history.
