Three Ragas chosen for this course are evocative of seasons. Megh Malhar is sung during the Monsoon, Hemant in winter and Bahar in spring. The texts of Bandhishes in these Ragas as well as their Swara combinations will be explored in the light of their being seasonal Ragas. Raga Madhmad Sarang with the same Swaras as Megh but with a completely different personality will be reviewed highlighting the fact that Sarang Ang and Malhar Anga are different and hence the differences in these two Ragas. In addition to these two ragas, two other interesting Malhar Prakars are introduced in this course with Chhota Khayals- Ramdasi Malhar and Jayant Malhar. Theory – The Sarang Ang, Sarang ke Prakar, Review Gamak Ke Prakar. Different Gharanas and approaches.
