H Mehboob had a good quality voice. I heard him for the first time. The wordings were also good.
I will get back with proper responses once that is resolved. I know Mr Gandhi well, having worked with him very closely once. A small correction — his designation was Director, Nehru Centre, and not artistic director.
Venkataramanji, I am enjoying your additions.
I am also impressed by your scholarship. Your Asavari-snake connection is more credible than what I had speculated with Subodh. My kite-flying was too outlandish to mention.
Not sure snakes have anything to do with it. They just tend to hang out with women, you know, like Eve, Cleopatra, Meera, Uloopi. I much prefer Adana and of course Darbari from this thaat. In fact I wonder why this is called the Asavari thaat any way as the aroha drops the gandhar and the nishad.
Darbari has the full scale with of course the twist that the Gandhar is so flat that it is almost a Rishabh. In western music this mode the Asavari parent scale is the natural minor scale Aeolian in the modal form and most composers rarely use it in its full form.
I asked my teacher once why and he said it was perhaps because there was no harmonic content to differ from a major scale.
The major scale becomes the natural minor if move the tonic to the 6th note of the major scale C major becomes A minor.
You need to stay in a scale long enough for your years to savour the symmetry. Also I think Westerners classical form dislike the distance of the flat 7th in a natural minor from the tonic,and raising it by a semitone to the normal 7th shudh nishad makes the resolution to the tonic sa more pleasing to their ears.
Jazz musicians use the natural minor often though, they feel our pain. The designation of Mr. Gandhi was DirectorNehru CentreLondon. At that moment of time my brother in lawMr. Ravinder pal Singh Dhirwas Asstt.
Gandhi, resulting into his getting posting to London as well. This was I think around to [? All the Gurus had great knowledge of these raags and they wrote and composed Shabads based on these raags. ETC punjabi channel is the one that telecast the gurubani recital from Harmandir Sahib [ Golden Temple ]Amritsar in the morning and evenings.
Listening to them is a pure soulful experience. The Raagis goes thru years and years of rehhazs to attain perfect renditions. I second the comment of Sh. Peddadu on your query in Thanks for the information on ragas in Gurbaani.
I would also like to add couple of clarifications. Asavari is not to be confused with Asa — a commonly used raga in Gurbaani — which is a variant of Mand.
As always comments from you add tremendous value to my posts. Thanks in particular for the very perceptive comment on the link between Asavari and the snake. Mr Bhatia has thrown light on ragas in Guru Granth Sahib. I have seen a lot of ragamalika paintings but the link between the raga and the image usually escapes me — except for ragas like Megh in which clouds and rain are depicted, and Basant which show gardens in full bloom with generous use of yellow.
Because of you and Mr Venkataraman I understand the symbolism of Asavari a lot better. However, it grew on me during research and writing, and the links in the comments have taken it further. Your detailed comments on the scale in Western music are beyond my grasp, but I do get the general drift.
