Raga Devagandhari

Vasundhra Rajagopal sings a rare Ragam Tanam Pallavi in the raga.

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. Devagandhari is a raga that is rarely taken up for a ragam tanam pallavi because of its sancharas and its slow pace. In this programme, Vasundhra Rajagopal sings an RTP in Raga Devagandhari. The pallavi, which includes the name of the raga, is set in Khanda jati Triputa tala: "Devagandhari Raagamu Paadedaa Devataga Bhaavinchi Mrokkedaa".
