Raga Rasikapriya

A Ragam Tanam Pallavi in the 72nd and last melakarta raga by B Kannan on the veena.

Ragam Tanam Pallavi, or RTP, is a highly specialised form in Carnatic music. A sophisticated piece and also one that allows for individuality in the style of presentation within the standard framework as each component is a manodhrama component. A special part of an RTP presentation is the tanam. Played on the veena, it has a special feel too. This programme features a ragam tanam pallavi in Rasikapriya, the 72nd and last melakarta raga. Rasikapriya is not a raga that is generally chosen for an RTP, especially a detailed one. The RTP on this programme is played on the veena by B Kannan. His gurus are Vasantha Krishnamurthy, Pichumani Iyer and S Balachander.
