In November, I’ll start on the Kalyan group of ragas:
– Shyam Kalyan
– Nand Kalyan (Anandi, or Nand)
– Yaman Kalyan
– Shuddha Kalyan
a somewhat different flavour:
I’ve started on the (infinite) journey of Raga Kafi…
See the raga page here... which I’ll keep adding over time.
I start off with the lighter side (Mishra Kafi) with samples drawn from movies, semi classical music and classical music…
The article contains the following video…
I’ve recorded and uploaded a new video with a drut teentaal (fast 16 beat) composition in Bhimpalasi to round out the collection…
The video can be seen here:
For details of this composition, please see the Raga Bhimpalasi in the Free Raga Guide:
Have added material to the raga Bhimpalasi – in the free raga guide
After Raga Marwa, the next raga is Raga Bhimpalasi, which is equivalent to the raga Aberi/Abheri in the Carnatic system.
I’ve just kicked off the page on this raga, which can be viewed here:
Will continue to add more material on this raga….
I’ve finally managed to get the first full page of the free raga guide up, starting with my current area of study: Raga Marwa
You can find the full text here:
On 30th March 2014 I performed with the Preston Symphony Orchestra – a concerto for sarod and tabla – by Nicolas Buff, with Girish Makwana. This was a first in Australia- to have a full symphony orchestra with the sarod/tabla.
A gentleman from Taiwan who writes a blog took some photos of the rehearsals
I’m trying to get a finished copy of the concert video and will upload at some stage
As I progress my lifelong objective of documenting compositions for the sarod, I’ve decided to keep material relevant to a raga on one page- instead of being scattered around the site.
Each page will be accessible via the Free Raga Guide Page
I’m going to start off with finishing off the grand Raga Marwa, with its own dedicated page.
