Madhava – (Vijay Kannan) Ft. Uma Ramasubramaniam



A Fusion based on the composition of Papanasam Sivan in the raga Hamsanandi.

Credits:
Main Melody and Lyrics: Papanasam Sivan
Vocals: Uma Ramasubramaniam
Music: Vijay Kannan

I have known Uma Ramasubramaniam for quite a while and had also been involved in a carnatic music CD (http://ragasurabhi.com/carnatic-music/buy-lalithamritham-audio-cd.html). Recently, Uma and Ram had come to Berlin and had a chance to record a couple of songs.

She hosts a website where one can learn about ragas of Indian Music : http://ragasurabhi.com and also teaches carnatic music online.

An interesting aspect about the music I have done for the above piece is the use of Graha bedam (Tonic Shift) in the second interlude. The actual raga of the song is in Hamsanandi. The graha bedam leads it to Hindolam
{{
The tonic shift is done when I change the Shadjamam (Sa, tonic note here is G) to the Rishabam of Hamsanandi (G#). Now the swaras of Hamsanandi are S R1 G3 M2 D2 N3 S’ Hindolam scale is reached when I play R1 G3 M2 D2 N3 R1′ (which when R1 = S becomes S G2 M1 D1 N2 S’).

Hamsanandi:
G Ab(G#) B C# E F# G’
Hindolam:
Ab(G#) B C’ E F# Ab'(G#’)
