Kalpana Swara

A selection involving ragas Kalyani, Mayamalavagaula, Dharmavati, Abhogi and Ritigaula.

Kalpana Swaras are part of the manodharma aspect of Carnatic music. It is a combination of swaras sung extempore , for a certain line of the composition. While this creative aspect can involve some mathematics and a familiarity with the laya aspects, it also needs a good knowledge of the raga and a good aesthetic sense. Kalpana swaras are exciting for their variety.Possibilities in an instrument are quite different from that of a voice and therefore exciting in a different way .The selection on this programme includes an instrumental piece.
