Songs of the famous Duos

This blog completes two years. What started off as a tentative foray into the world of Hindustani Classical Music, and just a topic to start a blog, has become an addiction now. It is scientifically proven that Indian Classical music has healing powers on the human brain and mind. Experiments have been performed to identify different Ragas and the ailment, the cure of which they can be associated with. It has been learnt that a 20-30 minute rendition of Raga Darbari can make you sleep soundly, if you listen to it with full concentration. Now, this surely is a nice way to get a good night’s sleep. At least better than popping those bitter pills each night, an escape for many, from the hustle bustle of daily life. What could be better than having Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Bhimsen Joshi, Rashid Khan and the likes of them, singing lullabies to you, and tucking you into bed.

Celebrating two years of indianraga, presented here are four songs from four famous singer duos, each from the pair incomplete without the other. Any individual name in a single duo is difficult to utter without mentioning the name of his partner. Understandably, all are brothers.

    we recognise the seven chakras /subtle centres/plexus
    and we should know that when the kundalini rises from muladhar chakra,the first chakra
    then SHE makes sounds or notes or NINAD in sanskrit
    and these are the alphabets of sanskrit language,the deva vani
    the seven notes of music are also formed on each chakra/plexus,starting with muladhar
    the alphabets on each chakra are the beeja mantra and along with the music notes ,sa,re ga ma pa etc ragas were formed
    and each chakra has a different raga
    raga shyama kalyan, raga hindol…….mooladhar chakra
    raga hamsadhawani,gujari todi……….swadhisthan
    vibhas,bhatiyaar,gunakali,lalit…………nabhi chakra
    raga durga,raga bhairav,ahir bhairav .hridaya/heart chakra
    raga jai jai wanti,raga des……………..vishudhi chakra
    raga bageshwari,raga bhup …………..agnya chakra
    raga bhairavi,darbari…………………….sahasrara
    the raga means….ra.[energy] ga..[ to move,to nourish]
    that which energises,nourishes is a raga and sahaja yoga has done indepth dtudy to heal all ailments and enter a state of bliss by awakening one’s
    kundalini shakti
