Raga Kalyani

G N Balasubramaniam sings an RTP in Raga Kalyani 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, G N Balasubramaniam sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Kalyani. GNB was known for his progressive elaboration of the raga, especially in his Ragam-Tanam-Pallavis, which is evident here too. The pallavi is set to Mishra Chapu tala, and the pallavi line is "Un Darisanam Kidaikkumo Nataraja Dayanidhe".
