Raga Nalinakanthi Part - 2

Hi all,

I have updated my blog with the second part of the discussion on the beautiful and romantic raga naLinakAnthI. In the first part of raga naLinakAnthI a basic introduction to this beautiful raga was made with regard to its structure and handling along with a comparison between a close sister raga kedAram.
The second part starts with a comparison between the hindustani raga Thilak KhAmod and Nalinakanthi. Then the colours of nalinakanthi are discussed from the point of view of compositions, both classical and cinematic.
As a finishing, I have included a small composition of mine in this raga, a western-classical-indian fusion.

Do check out the post here : and leave your comments and feedback.

In the post, I have discussed the difference between the two ragas and also given audio clips to help understand the beauty of these ragas.
