Week 39 Updates (Week0039)

 

Dear Rasikas,


This week we present to you raga Harikambodhi in our new raga segment. Harikambodhi is the 28th Melakartha raga, the shudda madhyama equivalent of raga Vachaspati.  Harikambodhi has given rise to a vast number of janya ragas.  Among the popular ones are Kambodhi, Khamas, Nattai Kurinji, Kedara Gowlai, Sahana, Yadukula Kambodhi, Senchurutti and Suruti.

There are certain compositions in Carnatic music which are a definitive illustration of the raga they belong to and in many cases, the only composition known commonly (of that raga). There are many such popular compositions like Saarasamukhi set in Gauda Malhar, Nada Thanumanisam in Chittaranjani, Sri Rama Padama in Amrithavahini and so on.  We present one such composition in the full song segment for this week -  'Emani Pogaduthura' in the raga Veera Vasantham set to Adi tala, a composition of Saint Thyagaraja.
