Lesson description

In this lesson we will learn the basic alankar (alankar 1) riyaz based on Raag Bhairav notes, which has Re and Dha komal. This lesson is in A#, which is suitable for females. If you are a male, watch this lesson instead, Basic Alankar based on Raag Bhairav | Scale C# | Male First let's try to understand how komal Re and komal Dha sound. Please watch the video lesson for demonstration. You can also practice along with the Gurus. This is the alankar we will practice in this lesson: Aaroh (ascending): Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Ṡa Avroh (descending): Ṡa Ni Dha Pa Ma Ga Re Sa In this lesson, we will do our riyaz with teen taal at 180 bpm.

We will start with holding one note for 16 matra (beats). We will be doing this alankar riyaz in both bol and aakar. This is how the lesson will progress:

  1. sing every swar/note for 16 matra (beats).
  2. sing every swar/note for 8 matra (beats).
  3. sing every swar/note for 4 matra (beats).
  4. sing every swar/note for 2 matra (beats).
  5. sing every swar/note for 1 matra (beat).
  6. sing every swar/note for 1/2 matra (beat) i.e, 2 swar in 1 matra, also called dugun.

Always end your riyaz gently with Sa, in bol, aakar, om, and humming. Watch the video for the demonstration and do your riyaz along with it.
