CH – Raga CDs of the Months (07/14): All Day Ragas

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on July 27, 2014

In different sources of literature the Ragas Pilu (o. Piloo), Kafi, Mand, Dhani or the Raga Bhairavi are listed as the so called >>all day ragas<< (notes: IMC OnAir already presented the Raga Bhairavi in on of its broadcasting shows: morning ragas).

(premiere: 22nd January 2007 @ Tide 96.0 FM)
broadcasting plan | streaming (Internet Radio & Mobile Radio) | podCast

Raga Pilu is a five tone raga, with a pentatonical scale (see broadcasting on 22nd August 2011) and Raga Kafi is a seven note raga (SA, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni and the SA on octave higher), a complete Raga, so called sanpoorna …

For the >>all day ragas<< it is characteristic to be assigned to the light classical period (Indian Light Classical Music). Apart from the instrumental music in Hindustani, in the North Indian Classical style, there exists the Indian Vocal Music.

Singing, the human voice, is the most prominent instrument of India. Here we also regain the form of the >>all day ragas<<. For example in the Thumri singing and Dadra, a nuance of the Thumri-s. The same as Raga Pilu and Kafi both Thumri and Dadra belong to the Light Indian Classical music. Thumri-s are used for the romantic expression.
