For the first time in the history I have brought out the following book in 2001 on Manodharma Sangeetham along with an audio CD. amsharma
SANGITA SVARARAGA SUDHA (Telugu & English)
In the annals of our music literature this is the first time to bring out Special-laya-exercises, Svarakalpana in different Ragas with a number of easily followable symbolised ‘Muktayis’ in Rupaka, Khanda-chapu, Mishra-chapu and Adi (medium & slow tempi & Trisra-gati) in the first part of Svara-sudha, few mathematical Pallavis and Ragalapana of 36 Ragas in symbolized notation in the second part of Raga-sudha. Supplied along with an album of 1 mp3 pre-recorded CD containing some Laya exercises and Svarakalpana and Ragalapana of 36 Ragas sung by the author himself according to the notation furnished in this book.
