Raga Lalit

This sunrise raga has a rather unusual scale S r G m M d N S (1 2b 3 4 4# 6b 7).

The brief alap which introduces the main melodic principles is followed by two gats with the accompaniment and solos by the Indian tablaist Rahul Pophali.

The first gat is in vilambit (slow) tintal (16 beats), the immediately following second gat is set in drut (fast) tintal.

Raga Puriya

Major hexatonic raga prescribed for performance around sunset. It is based on the scale S r G M D N S (1 2b 3 4# 6 7).

After the short alap it continues with the jhaptal (ten beats), the final part is in drut tintal.

Tabla accompaniment and solos by Tomáš Reindl.

Raga Bageshri

A romantic night raga with the scale S R g m P D n S (1 2 3b 4 5 6 7b).

The Pa should be played intermittently in some melodic lines. The alap again is not long, the first gat is in vilambit tintal and the second in drut tintal.

The tabla is played by Tomáš Reindl.
