I have new post on the beautiful Raga Nalinakanthi where I have discussed the beautiful, romantic and utterly blissful carnatic raga. It is a raga derived from the major scale raga sankarabharanam. It is very similar in scale to another raga called kedAram. 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.
Do read through it here and leave your comments and questions. => Raga nalinakanthi -1
