Raga Abhogi

T N Seshagopalan sings an RTP with the pallavi set to Khanda Jati Triputa tala.

The Ragam Tanam Pallavi has for long been the showpiece of performance, calling attention, as it does, to the technical competence of the artiste. It also provides a complete experience of all the improvisational elements. It is an added bonus when the kalpana swaras also include a ragamalika section, which most listeners look forward to. In this programme, Madurai T N Seshagopalan presentes a quintessential Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Abhogi, which he ends with a burst of ragamalika kalpana swaras. The pallavi, which is adapted from the charanam of the popular Gopalakrishna Bharati kriti, Sabhapatikku Vaeru Deivam in Raga Abhogi, is set to Khanda Jati Triputa tala.
