Raga Mohanam

A rendition by the pallavi expert, T R Subrahmanyam.

The Ragam Tanam Pallavi has for long been the showpiece of performance, calling attention, as it does, to the technical competence of the artiste. The tala often becomes important in exhibiting one’s prowess, and the pallavi too is suitably selected so that it retains its integrity even when intricate mathematical combinations are performed. The Pallavi on this programme, by T R Subrahmanyam, is in Raga Mohanam and set to Mishra Jati Triputa tala (Tisra Nadai). The tala has a cycle of 11 beats, divided into 7+2+2.
