Raga Appreciation at Raga Sudha Hall with OS Thyagarajan

Oct 2009

One of the most gratifying experience for a rasika is to be able to identify the raga that the main artist is performing in a concert. These ragas are identified through constant hearing but there are certain key phrases for every raga which give it its distinct flavor. If rasikas get to know these key phrases, they can identify ragas easily. It was with this focus that Mudhra organized an interactive session by noted musician O.S.Thyagarajan and Dr.Radha Bhaskar. Ragas from various categories like Rakthi ragas, vakra ragas, vivadi ragas etc. were taken and suitably illustrated. The hall -packed audience felt thrilled to hear many popular compositions sung beautifully by Thyagarajan and also his experience filled explanations.
