up is Raga Bhairavi
in these headphones, dude
… haiku in the style of @revoltoftheapes.
Preparing for next week’s February edition of Inter-Dimensional Music on Marfa Public Radio, navigating raga headspace with the help of Tawfiq and Tanarang. Of all our recent discoveries, Raga Bhairavi is perhaps the most enchanting, and has now become part of our regular morning routine at the Indianapolis Zen Center. From Tanarang’s raag index …
Any one who claims to know or appreciate music cannot be unaware of the queen of melodies i.e. Raag Bhairavi. The soft (Komal) notes and their smooth rendering with pleasing touches – Khatke, Jhatke and Murkiyan simply mesmerizes the audience. A pleasant sobering atmosphere full of love and piety is created and one feels so close to the Supreme. Its compositions include several Thumris, Bhajans, Ghazals, Songs etc. Since it is an ocean of immense possibilities the melodic combitions can include all the twelve notes with skill.
Renditions from flute specialists such as Pannalal Ghosh and Tanjore Viswanathan are highly recommended: An ideal complement to John‘s coffee and morning practice. Tune in to ID Music on Marfa Public Radio this Sunday, February 5 from 9-11pm CT for more.
