Compilation of compositions

Compilation of compositions an educational tool

The exposition of a raga becomes easy with the help of compositions based on it. A composition (bandish) contains the essence of a raga within itself. Through different compositions, different phrases of a raga are established. Keeping this fact in mind, ITCSRA ventured to compile as many bandishes as possible in basic ragas of Hindustani classical music. This serves as an excellent educational tool.
