Raga Purvikalyani - Part 2

Part 2 of a two-part feature on this important pratimadhyama raga.

The programme looks at the different hues of the raga Purvikalyani through an array of compositions. With the emotions it evokes being as varied as the Adbhuta and Shanta rasas, the raga has a very distinct charm. Though the avarohana is sampurna, the arohana is asampurna and vakra. It also has an anya prayoga in the arohana that goes "ma dha sa" instead of the usual "pa dha pa sa". With many rare songs and unique renditions, this two-part programme takes a comprehensive look at raga Purvikalyani.
