Jagadisha Shambho (with swaras)


After discussion with the swamis about the challenge of teaching melodies, Priya recorded this to offer a possible method for helping us learn songs. The artist could first sing one line using the words of the song and then sing the same line as swaras. As you will hear, this is an excellent method. Thank you, Priya! She says: The raagam for jagadhIsha shambhoh is: maandu in thamil or maand as its known south of the vindhyas in general. A janyam of shankaraabharanam, this ragam is used for thukkadas and other pieces towards the end of concerts - or occasionally to tune devotional pieces as is the case here.

    The Hindu religion brings to us the gift of tolerance that allows for different stages of worship, different and personal expressions of devotion and even different Gods to guide our life on this Earth.
