“Jalajakshi ninne” varnam in Hamsadhvani

While we started this varnam in today’s class, master wanted us to list on the characteristics on  Hamsadhvani…As always, he gave the answers…here are those for starters like me!!

1. This raga is sung mostly as the first one in concerts  – it is suppose to warm up the musician.  You may notice most of the Ganesha stutui are in Hamsadhvani

2. It is the born from the 29th Mela Kartha – Theera Sankara baranam (suddha madhyama ragam)

3. It is ‘OUDAVAM’ ragam  – it has 5 swaras
