#1 BEHAG

Post by RSR »

Hindusthani Music has given CM composers some wonderful raagams like Kaapi, kamaaj, HindoLam, Darbari Kanada, Jaijaivanthi, Paraj, Sindhubairavi ,Tilang, Bagesree, Maand, Jonpuri and Behag.
Quite unrelated to the theme of the song and the lyrics , these raagams evoke some moods. ( may be subjective ?)
Behag is one such wonderful ragam.
To the best of my knowledge, The Trinity have not used this raagam.
But Gopaalakrushna Bharathy , a contemporary of the Trinity, has used this raagam . ( He had learnt HM ) ( 'Aadum Chithambaramo' )

( If it is not a retuned version), Purandara Dasa ' Naneke badavanu'is a very nice song., rendered by Smt.MS

'Sukumaaraa' by Smt.MS in 'Sakunthalai' is worth listening again and again for the niraval and second stanza(mannar mannava)

(Kumaran nadesan upload)

A few more in Behag may be found in

.
'Aranga un makiamaiyai in Meera (Tamizh) is another fine tune.

CRamachandra has given a wonderful tune sung by Lata in the film Jhanjar. ( pyar teri duniya')- 1955

Would welcome kruthis and other types of compositions in this ragam for reference and information.
( especially from post-trinity composers) ---of Mysore which had a relatively greater patronage to HM and HM musicians
