CH – Raga CDs of the Months (07/2011): (Late) Afternoon Ragas

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on July 4, 2011

An instrumental raga interpretation and it’s basic material of notes, the shrutis (22 micro tones) target at imitating the human voice. Within the techniqual possibilities of an Indian instrument (e.g. Sitar, Sarod, Santoor, Tabla …) an Indian music maestro looks for the same modulations, the same ornamentics which are typical for the human voice.

In Indian Classical Music the voice is being treated as an instrument in the same way. – It is the fundamental instrument of Hindustani (North Indian) and Carnatic (South Indian) Music.

The vocal singing in India has progressed into different styles. Many forms of compositions define accurate scales of notes and their ornaments. Beside the Alap, a free narration and the most difficult form of improvisation till today exist vocal stiles, which can be dated back to the 13th century like Dhrupad, Dhamar, Tarana, Tappa, Thumri, Ghasel and Khyal.

In August 2006 the broadcasting show of IMC – India meets Classic has it’s focus on the Khyal, performed by some of Indias legendary vocalists. It is the bel canto of Indian Classical Music, a brillant and gloriously embroidered stile of singing, loaded up with difficult vowels.
