Post by vamsipet »

Is there any book that gives all the interesting/useful information related to the 72 Melakarta and their Janya ragas?
Thank you

From this website you can download 4 volumes of Raganidhi which compares Karnatak and Hindustani ragas. It is in English and with Devanagarai notes.

Thank you. Have you anyone read the book "Ragas in Indian Music" by V.K.Krishna Prasad. Is it better than other books.
Please give your opinion.

I'd recommend Dr. S. Bhagyalakshmi's "Ragas in Carnatic Music" book.
