Raga Todi

G N Balasubramaniam sings an RTP in Raga Todi and Chatusra Jati Triputa tala, 4 kalai.

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 - or GNB, as he is popularly referred to - was renowned for his renditions of Raga Todi and also for the meticulous and structured manner of elaboration of the raga. Here, he sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Todi. The pallavi is set in Chatushra Jati Triputa tala, 4 kalai.
