North Indian Classical Music
Raga Bageshree

Her voice,
seductive when she is near her lover,
Bageshree is lovely, desirable.
With eyes large like the lotus 
and a flawless pale body,
she plays upon the lute
her songs of love.

Scale Up: C, Eb, F, A, Bb, C
Scale Down:
C, Bb, A, (G, A, Bb, A), F, Eb, D, C
This is an "F" Raga, with A emphasized quite a lot
Always played during the night 

Bageshree is one of North India's most popular ragas. It lends itself to both light and serious treatment very well. It is very distinctive and instantly recognizable by the attentive listener.

Shivkumar and Brijbhushan This is a great example of the playfullness that Raga Bageshree can conjure. A rare recording from the 1960s featuring Shivkumar on santoor (Indian hammered dulcimer) and Brijbhushan on guitar.  

Kishori Amonkar A Great Indian vocalist. 1964 

Sultan Khan
Recorded by Mickey Hart in November, 1974 in Fairfax, California. Sultan Khan is one of the great sarangi players from India. Tabla accompaniment is by Shri Rij Ram. The rhythmic cycle is Ektal (12 beats).
