• Raag Monomanjari •

S-r-G-M-P-D-nN-S


Created by Maihar sitar legend Nikhil Banerjee (“…I’m quite satisfied with one of my Sonodisc LPs: Raag Monomanjari”). From Narendra Datar’s 1989 review of this record: “A jod raga…a remarkable combination [of] Kalavati and Marwa. Kalavati is a very joyful late night melody, whereas Marwa is an early evening melody that portrays pathos. In [Monomanjari], one can feel a very delicate interweaving of these two contrasting moods…a highly intellectual and emotional appeal.”
