Listening to a raga is a beautiful experience in itself……….
Raga is something very unique to Indian classical music - one without a parallel anywhere in the world.
As rasikas, how do we understand and appreciate different ragas that are performed by the artist through compositions as well as various improvisatory forms?
Well, understanding a raga does not just mean the identification of its name. It involves a more holistic approach where the listener must try to acquire a complete picture of the raga through constant and intent listening. The rasika should analyse how the same raga unfolds through different forms like alapana, composition, niraval or swaram. He should get absorbed in the music and try to live the experience which the artist wishes to share with his audience.
