Carnatic music lessons

Postby Christianamr » Fri Nov 02, 2012 1:56 am

Since I regularly look for raga lessons in Hindustani Sangeet , I see that the search results become mixed up with the Carnatic lessons .
I have observed that the Carnatic leesons are of better quality and higher quantity . :(

In fact some of them are so good , that they have to be posted and deserve their own thread , even though I don´t watch them in whole lenght and with full attention as I do for the Hindustani lessons .

Here is Prince Rama Varma giving a lesson on Ragam Khambhoji lasting over 26 minutes . :shock:

Carnatic Vocal Series : Lesson No.1 on SARALISWARALU (sarali which means "simple or easy" and "swara" which means "note") )
A complete tutorial on learning the fundamentals of the first module in carnatic music the " Sarali Varisai". These are the 7 basic notes that are common to all the ragas which are referred to as the "saptaswaras". Mastering the Saraliswaralu forms the prerequisite for learning music any further.
The Sapta Swaras are Shadja, Rishaba, Gandhara, Madyama, Panchama, Daivata & Nishada. Swara is a musical note. Swaras are reputed to have been inspired by sounds of birds & animals such as :
Shadja -- Peacock
Rishaba -- Ox
Gandhara -- Goat
Madyama -- Krouncha bird
Panchama -- Cuckoo
Daivata -- Horse
Nishada -- Elephant


Raaga: Maayamaava Gowla(15th Melakartha Raagam)

Raga Sri

Carnatic Vocals Series:Lesson 16 -
Sri Ragam is one of the oldest ragas in Carnatic Music. It unrelated to the Hindustani Shree.It takes the lower madhyamam being a janya raga of Kharaharapriya. Sri Ragam is much beloved and is considered to be sign of happiness and glory.

Arohanam: Sa Ri Ma Pa Ni Sa
Avarohanam: Sa Ni Pa Dha Ni Pa Ma Ri Ga Ri Sa
Tal : Dhruv

I wonder if this carnatic ragam Sri is related to the primeval raga of the raga-ragini system .... :arrow: :?:

Parrikar points to a very singular relationship :

Raga Shree of the Carnatic paddhati is an altogether different bloke although there exists a curious relationship: a simple flip-flop of the swaras of the Carnatic Shree from or to their vikrita forms yields an approximate contour of the Hindustani Shree. Notice that a similar correlation holds true for other name-congruent pairs, eg., the Carnatic Hindolam and Hindustani Hindol or the Carnatic Bhoopal and Hindustani Bhoopali.
