Raga Hamsanadam

An RTP in Raga Hamsanadam by the Carnatica Brothers, K N Shashikiran & Chitraveena Ganesh.

Grandsons of the legendary Gottuvadyam Narayana Iyengar, K N Shashikiran and P Ganesh are cousins who sing as a vocal duo going by the title of Carnatica Brothers. This Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Hamsanadam includes a two-stage raga alapana with a three-octave range which shows different contours of the raga, including the unusual swara D3 or Shatshruti Dhaivata. Other interesting features include the incorporation of the raga mudra in the pallavi line, and the selection of ragas with the same prefix as the original raga for the ragamalika kalpana swaras.
