Carnatic ragas

Postby Christianamr » Thu Oct 11, 2012 3:03 am

I used the search engine to see if there was a topic devoted to these ragas in general , and since I found none , I made it myself .

There is an instructive series about carnatic ragas by Tamil singer Charulatha Mani which is quite informative with live singing and snippets from film songs :

सहस्रनाम ततुलयम राम नाम वरानने |
Sahasranāma tat tulyam Rāma nāma Varānane .

Raga Nadanamakriya .

I´ve been listening to this raga for years , as part of the ragamala " Bhaja Govindam "

It seems not to have a hindustani equivalent .

From here :


A nishadantya janya raga derived from the 15th mela Mayamalavagaula. The notes taken by the raga are Kakali Ni^ Shadja^ Sudha Ri^ Antara Ga^ Sudha Ma^ Pa and Sudha Dha. An upanga raga in which Ri^ Ma^ Dha are raga chaya svaras. A minor raga admitting of rasa pradhana raga and shines well when rendered in Vilambita kala. The ‘Sikamaram pan’ of Tevaram is the corresponding raga of Madhyama sruti reveals the chaya of this raga. According to Dikshitar school^ this is known as Nadaramakriya. Nadanmakriya is also used in light music^ operas^ folk song^ Kathakali Music etc. The folk tune ‘ Anandakalippu’ in chapu is set in this raga. The ideal time for the singing of the raga is noon time. In concerts this raga is sung in post pallavi part. This is sung in madhyama sruti because of its limited range of sancharas.
