Kalpana Swara

Renditions in ragas Gaula, Athana, Purnashadjam, Mohanakalyani and Simhendra Madhyamam.

Kalpana Swara belongs to the manodharma aspect of Carnatic music. This aspect is exciting for the creative and improvisational exercise that it is. Even among the different manodharma aspects, which include alapana and neraval, kalpana swara is exciting for its various possibilities. Since it consists entirely of swaras, it is also easy to follow. The different mathematical combinations that are possible, even while factoring in the grammer of and maintaining the aesthetics of the raga makes it very enjoyable. This programme features a selection of renditions that include interesting kalpana swara sections.
