Which rAga is the pitAmahA talking about in the first clip? He is talking of niSAdAntya bhASANga rAga janyam under 8th mELam (hanumatODi). Employs all the svarAs: S, R1, R2, G2, M, P, D1, N2. Sounds like sindhubhairavi, (if we can fix) arOhaNa: S R2 G2 M1 G2 P D1 N2 S and avarOhaNa: N2 D1 P M1 G2 R1 S N2 S. but I thought it is a rAga born out of the 10th mELam (again bhASAngam). Also, what he sings is closer to karnATaka tODi than hindustAni bhairavi. Can some one clarify?

He is talking about Raga Thodi- his opening is about this one.



Dr. Manjunath Sir, Thank you so much for the kind words.

I'm sure like me 100s and more rasikas would have enjoyed u'r clippings done with such a lot of effort. It's a pity no one wants to acknowledje u openly. I don't know why this culture has set in. There is a Sanskrit saying........ i don't remember the first half; second half ends as ...................vachanEka daridratha?? Implying " Poverty should not be there in speaking good words " Pl.continue u'r good work, I know u r the last person expecting any compliments from respected members!

You can listen to the opening sentence of what he is talking about in part one of the You tube link above, if you have not done it
earlier.

Kailasamji,
The opening sentence he says "namadu.... nama carnatic musiccula tODI rAgattula janyam". He is not mentioning the rAga name at all. He is mentioning it is a janya under tODI rAga. Its quite unlikely he is talking about tODi or hanumatODi. As arunsri pointed out, He is talking only about punnAgavarALi. The raga sanchAra shows that clearly. It is not about tODi. Thanks for the wonderful links though.

Hi,

Regards,

An interesting article about him appeared in the FRONTLINE magazine of 06th Nov. 1998

Semmangudi looks back - at 90

The great Master of theory and practice relives Carnatic music in the twentieth century.

SSI-LGJ-UKS Madras 27-6-1966. Fabulous Kedaragowla RTP with ghana rAga thAnam by the pitamaha with usual intra-music comments and besh-besh for LGJ. Million thanks to original recorder and uploader (to Sangeethapriya I think).
