Raga Bhairavi

Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer sings an RTP in Raga Bhairavi in his inimitable style.

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, Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Bhairavi. Semmangudi's RTPs were occasions when he let himself go, and his pallavis in ragas Keeravani, Shankarabharanam & Varali, to name a few, are testimony to the intensity and fervour that he brought into them. This pallavi in Raga Bhairavi is set to Triputa tala.
