Raga Gaurimanohari

V R Dileep Kumar sings an hour-long Ragam Tanam Pallavi in the 23rd Melakarta raga.

This programme features an RTP in Raga Gaurimanohari. 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. This RTP rendition has V R Dileep Kumar elaborating Raga Gaurimanohari, which is not often given such detailed treatment. The alapana, tanam and pallavi are all given equal weightage. Dileep Kumar sings the tanam to the accompaniment of the mridangam.
