HINDUSTANI RAGAS ON THE CARNATIC VEENA

Quite sometime back we recorded on the veena short alapanas of 18 Hindustani Ragas for a company called Sofia Softwares Limited. They wanted us to make it as brief as we could, and “as leisurely and slow paced as possible.” Whether they had in mind some music to go with sipping chamomile tea while reflecting the events of the day, we are not sure. But we thought we could upload it on our podcast (the pink box above) for web listeners. The entire recording has been uploaded in the three parts, titled Hindustani Ragas – 1, 2 and 3. The list of ragas is given below:

1. Darbari Kanada

6. Bhimpalas

7. Bairagi Bhairav
