Raga Todi

Pattabhirama Pandit sings an elaborate RTP in Raga Todi.

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, Pattabhirama Pandit, a disciple of Palghat K V Narayanaswamy, takes up Raga Todi. After a leisurely and elaborate alapana, he sings an engaging tanam. The pallavi, set in a simple Adi tala, is again an elaborate affair where Pandit takes his time developing the raga to provide a wholesome Ragam Tanam Pallavi experience.
