Overview

Raga Goud Malhar is a beautiful melody, the names indicating that this is sung during the rainy season. The Raga is derived from folk melodies and manifests itself in a unique way in its classical form.

Raga Shree is introduced in this course. The Swaras of Shree are to be practiced by doing Swar Sadhana exercises in this Raga. Swar Vistar is done as the student starts the journey into this meditative Raga. Paltas are composed and practiced in this Raga. The Swara combinations in this Raga are unique and the student would focus on achieving perfection in singing this Raga. A Chhota Khayal in Shree set to Teentaal is learnt.
