Neraval

A selection of renditions with neraval sections.

The neraval is a good test of an artiste's ability to manage everything together. It requires an artiste to stick to the confines of the tala while creatively working on the melodic structure of the line taken up for improvisation. At the same time, the meaning of the words and the emotion inherent in it too should be kept in mind. In the hands of a master, the neraval brings out underlying facets of both melody and meaning, heightening the overall experience of the song. This programme includes renditions with neraval sections in the ragas Hamsadhwani, Mayamalavagaula, Kamboji and Pantuvarali.
