Raaga Medley is a compilation of fusion tracks that explore the
intricasies of classical raagas in various forms.
Raagas are the building blocks of Indian classical music - both Carnatic
and Hindustani. A raaga is a series of five or more distinct musical notes
forming a melody. The basic mode of reference in modern Hindustani practice
(known commonly as the shuddha - basic - form) is a set which is equivalent
to the Western Ionian mode - this is called Bilawal thaat in Hindustani
music (the Carnatic analogue would be Sankarabharanam). The tracks in this
album blend raagas with western chords to create melodies.
