A capsuled presentation of an RTP (Ragam Thanam Pallavi) which is a purely improvisational component of Carnatic Music (South Indian Classical Music). Performed for 8 minutes using a combination of 4 different melodies, this piece is a spontaneous expression of 3 extraordinary artistes who exchange creative ideas through musical nuances. The intricacies of the melodies are interwoven beautifully using syllables, vowels, lyric and notes with the help of 3 instruments - the voice, the violin, the mridangam.


Lyrics: Shankarabharananai Azhaithodi Vaadi Kalyani Darbarukku

Meaning: Oh lady, Kalyani, please bring along your consort, Shakarabharanan, and come to the court of the kings, Darbar

Language: Tamil (Regional South Indian)
