Neyveli R Santhanagopalan sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Kapi
The Ragam Tanam Pallavi has for long been the showpiece of performance, calling attention, as it does, to the technical competence of the artiste. It also provides a complete experience of all the improvisational elements. It is an added bonus when the kalpana swaras also include a ragamalika section, which most listeners look forward to. In this programme, Neyveli R Santhanagopalan sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Kapi. Aftre a leisurely alapana and a freeflowing ragamalika tanam, Santhanagopalan sings a crisp little pallavi which is set in Tisra Jati Triputa tala, 2 kalais.
