You must listen KJY's
'chakravartini ninakku ~jnaan en shilpa gOpuram thurannu'... for a fantastic Hamir kalyani. I wonder whether anybody has a full recording! I will search too! Here is just the first part

Meena
One of the best Rama Ninne by GNB I have heard is from the concert where he sings an elaborate Evara Madugudura in Kalyani.Wonder if Badri has it.If not I will dig it out
Sorry folks - don't have this concert with me.
I'm afraid I'll have to force Kji to dig it out.
Kji, sorry for ading to your work and thanks in advance.

The clip I posted plays by itself. As you notice there is a good collection of CM/HM at this site. As Lakshman suggests you can play them! Good site indeed!

It also has 2 other scales: Sa Ri Sa Pa Ma Pa Da Ni Sa, Sa Ni Sa Da Pa Ma Ri Ga Ma* Ri Sa and
Sa Pa Ma Pa Da Ni Sa, Sa Ni Da Pa Ma Ri Ga Ma* Ri Sa

#35 Saranga ragam elaborated - any audio links available?

Post by HarishankarK » 26 Sep 2018, 07:26

Namastey all

Can anyone give a clue as to if ragam Saranga has been elaborated to a RTP, Main or Submain level by any artiste - vocal or instrumental.
Mostly what I find in youtube/Sangeethapriya - is all max - short alap and crisp swaras and mostly no swaras.
MDR has sung an elaborate Nee vada ne gana - is it?

If anyone knows pls help and provide link(s)- thanks

Sir: It should be ashTapadi (अष्टपदि) - a verse with 8 pada/meter. ashTapati (अष्टपति) is a polyandrous woman with 8 husbands (अष्टपति - (%{aSTa4-}) mf(%{-patnI})n (%{-pat}) , having eight husbands TA1r.) - I think they have to be contemporaneous (extending bigamy to octogamy, I guess): I do not think that even the much-married and lovely Ms. Elizabeth Taylor would qualify as a अष्टपति. :)

rajesh saranga experiences
---------------------------
1. Many musicians have sung arunachalam nAtham , this krithi and the raga is bit grand usually musicians take up this kriti with an alapana in between submain and main

2. I would love to hear the RTP that Crama mentioned where vignesh eashwar has sung. i have tasted a combo of saranga-brindavana saranga RTP sung by Suryaprakash . I think apart from me hearing he once sang in chicago which was also reviewed .

3. Nee vada nee gAna is sung by many vidwans / vidushis i particularly cherish one maharajapuram ramachandran rendition that i heard

4. The PT krithi gananathanE is typically sung by TVS and Suryaprakash school .entha bhagyamau the great mMi has sung and has been followed by many with one mandolin srinivas dazzling with his artistry.

5. Vijay siva has sung a rare EmidOva balkuma that i heard . It is a rare thyagaraja krithi in saranga. i think even abhishek has sung it . There is one more rare krithi that Vijay sang , cannot recollect now. Vijay generally takes this raga bit too often than many vidwans/vidushis.

6. One concert vidushi raji gopalakrishnan sang both saranga and kalyani in the same concert with one filler in between .I forgot what she sang that day , only recollect the sabha parthasarathy sabha.

7. saranga varnam inta modi is not that frequent, few instrumentalist have taken this . Personally like saranga varnam openers especially for vocal concerts , voice gets opened well with this stocky raga.

8. ranjani gayathri have sung a saranga-nayaki combo RTP in academy. i have not heard this, there was some write uo.

9. One more saranga series of RTP that i heard in pozhichalur by suryaprakash apart from saranga it had sarangamalhar and saranga nattai , though in raga texture no correlation to raga saranga.

10.If my memory is right , abhishek also has sung a brindavana saranga and saranga combination in an RTP with different lines. I have not heard this , we had some review here.

11. There is also a karuna judavayyya - saranga thyagaraja krithi that maharajapuram santhanam has sung. Not able to recollect apart from santhanam rendition.

Saranga is a very tough raga to impress and it is extremely heavy in texture . Musicians sareeram has to allow on that day to take up this weighty raga. Brother sAranga is heavy and rare and has ceded control to sister kalyani who is fairly ubiquitous especially when vidushi and vidwans throat is konjam thodaiyilla kichu kichu . kalyani is vicks cough drops tablet , saranga is strepsils

Rajesh, apart from so many Sarangas you have listed- Suryaprakash and Maharajapuram topping the list, there is one more song Mamava Raghurama Marakatha manishyama sung by Maharajapuram Santhanam. IIRC, Maharajapuram Viswanatha Iyer has sung Emitova besides Alathur Bros.

'Ashtapati' as an exclusive word would mean just 'eight husband(s)' and not necessarily denote 'a woman with eight husbands'. Even to describe husbands of eight women, the usage must be in plurality.

Crama,
I have heard nee vAda nee gAna sung in saranga by maharajapuram santhanam. Where did you hear santhanam singing this mamava raghurama , is that one of your days where you rode your bike in bangalore or trivandrum where you forgot to take the recorder. Are you sure santhanam has sung mamava
Searching in you tube I find mamava raghurama has been taken up by s kalyanaraman and trichur ramachandran. I just heard this krithi for the first time now of SKR and just going to doze off now.

Just recollecting one more great saranga krithi ehi trigadeesha of T it is quite a good number.

Rajesh,
Don't hear the rAgA much. Other songs which come to mind are: Ramalinga aDigaL's aruL jOthi deivam ennai ANDukoNDa deivam, ambalathE ADuginRa Ananda deivam (a Nataraja song. We have a current thread on that topic). I pariya sobagAva dEvaroLu nA kANE, gOpi janapriya gOpAlanalladE is another. enta bhAgyamuna, yet another. A film song from en vIDu--konjum mozhi maindargaLE...
As for nIvADanE gAna, it was very popular in the fifties, and the satyambu nityambu bit caught our attention because of someone called Ambu in the friends' circle, and it added interest to the song if she were present in the concert!

Arul jothi deivam is sung in many ragams. I hve heard it in Panthuvarali , Hamsadhwani etc. IIRC, MS has sung in Panthuvarali.

Ee pariya sobagava is sung very frequently in Saranga by TVS.

I have heard Ehi Trijagadeesa by Balamurali.
