Welcome (സ്വാഗതം)

This is a modest attempt to introduce to you the richness of Indian classical music as well as to explore the relationship between film (non-classical) songs and ragas.

I'll try to achieve this by rendering:

- Film songs (with or without karaoke music)
- Light music songs (ലളിത ഗാനം)
- (part of) Classical music compositions (ശാസ്ത്രീയ സംഗീതം)
- brief Raga Aalaapanas (രാഗാലാപനം) and Manodharma Swaras (മനോധര്‍മ്മ സ്വരം) (extempore swara patterns that abide by the raga rules)
- brief explanations of raga bhaavas (രാഗ ഭാവം) with examples

I would love to hear from you w.r.t to the content as well as the format. Please post your comments/email me.

If you like it, feel free to pass it on!
