CHENNAI, January 27: Acharyanet.com & Madhuradhwani have come together to conduct a first-of-its-type workshop at Arkay Convention Centre here Mylapore on January 31.It will feature Chitravina N Ravikiran. And, it will commence at 6 p.m.

The work is to benefit middle, advanced and performing-level students in concerts as well as competitions.

A few well-known as well as rare ghana, rakti and ranjaka ragas will be taken in the first part of this series with practical tips on how to open, develop, build up and wind down around key phrases and notes so that the essential features of the raga are brought out clearly and beautifully.

“Whole careers have been made and sustained by many legends because of their ability to render even short but outstanding expositions of alapanas of ragas such as Yadukulakambhodhi, Nayaki, Ahiri, Anandabhairavi,” says Ravikiran in a release. “Therefore, it is very essential for students to grasp the life-points and notes of ragas clearly early in their musical journey. A student’s grasp of the nuances of raga will percolate over to rendition of compositions as well as neraval, kalpana-swaras etc,” he points out.

Acharyanet.com has conducted many workshops on manodharma as well as compositions of Trinity, Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi, Pallavi Gopala Iyer and specialized forms such as Javalis, featuring legends like Tanjavur Shankara Iyer, Sangita Kalanidhi R K Shrikanthan, among others.
