Pushpa Oda (tanpura)
Marwa is a very difficult raga to perform particularly on the sarode since the playing of any open strings is rare or avoided entirely. With mood of compassion, strength and devotion, Marwa has a unique color that is quite strong and immediately recognizable. This raga is usually performed in the early evening.
The second short piece in raga Sindhi Bhairavi is from a beautiful light classical melody composed by Maestro Ali Akbar Khan at the Ali Akbar College of Music in 1978. This raga is traditionally performed either at the end of a classical concert or in the morning. A rhythm cycle of keherwa (8 beats) is used for this rendition.
Thanks to Inside Ohm Productions for recording this live North Indian Classical concert in Berkeley, California, March 14, 2004.
