Raga Shankarabharanam

The Malladi Brothers sing a ragam tanam pallavi in the 29th melakarta raga.

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 the Malladi Brothers, Sreeramprasad and Ravi Kumar, is in raga Shankarabharanam and set in Mishra Jati Rupaka tala, with a count of nine (2 + 7).
