Hi all, I really like Hamsanaadham raagam. I have heard many people sing Bantureeti with some of them doing a short alaapana (I like S. Kalyanaraman). I also did listen Dandapani Desikar's pada vendume posted by param sir. Are there any other songs in this raagam? Have artists done extensive alaapana in this raagam? Please share your thoughts Regards Shyam
Hi Mantra I have a detailed Hamsanaadam by Sri Yesudas with a fantastic alapana and kalpanaswaram. Its from a concert that I recorded 10yrs ago in Chicago. Its on a tape. So I will see if I can get it onto my computer, so that everyone enjoy it. Kiran
the vivadhi dhaivadham is actually present in some version of bantureeti. Senior Vidwans like Sangeetha Kalanidhi R Vedavalli sing the kriti with the dhaivadham. The dhaivadham is clearly shown in the anupallavi of her rendering. I may have a recording. will check and post if i can find it.

As I understand it, the archaic form of hamsanAdam, as given in sangraha cUDAmaNi and employed by tyAgarAjA, contained ShaTSruti dhaivatam - I believe the original name of what we sing today as hamsanAdam is "varadA."
Vijaysiva sang an elobarate 'Kalyana rama' last year at S V Temple, Pittsburgh. It was a pretty good rendering.
Of the instrument renderings, MSG and Ravikiran are the ones i have heard many a time. MSG needless to say renders this raga very well and uses the dhaivatham on just a couple of locations. A couple of years ago, Mysore Manjunath played this 'la MSG' style in the Mysore brothers concert.
