Kambhoji

Compositions in the charming, popular and important raga.

Tribes moving across different regions and spreading their music with them conjures a lovely picture in one’s mind. The raga of this programme, Kambhoji, carries all the charm of such a history. Its origin is in a tribe called Kambhoja, said to originally be from Kambhoja, a place that is located in North West India. Mention of the raga in ancient music literature also gives us proof of its antiquity. Today, it is one of the major ragas in Carnatic music and more popular than its parent raga, Harikambhoji. Starting with an ata tala varnam, the programme also includes some rare compositions in raga Kambhoji.
