Welcome to our blog.

This blog is dedicated to music lovers from all over the world. We expect this blogspot to be a favorite destination for the students of Indian Classical Music. Here, we present audio resources teaching the basics of various Raagas in Indian Classical Music. Just listen and sing along. Please go through Things Good to Know page to get the basic understanding of terms used throughout this blog site. Please visit the List of Raagas page. Click on the name of any Raag which will take you to the learning material on that Raag. We will keep upgrading the material on this blog as we progress.

Ideally, it is good to learn singing directly from a Guru who can direct you to sing in tune(Sur) and rhythm(Taal). However, in today's fast paced world there are many challenges to overcome while learning music. This blog is an effort to make those challenges easier. We hope it serves this purpose.

We are happy to let you know we have added AalapTane for the following Raagas (and will be adding  more....) Asavari, Bageshree, Bhairavi, Bhoop, Bhimpalasi, Bihag, Des, Durga, Darbari Kanada, Hamir, Kafee, Kedar, Khamaj, Malkauns, Piloo, Sarang, Tilang,Yaman. Just go to "List of Raagas"and Click on the name of the Raaga and scroll down to see AalapTane post. Also Notations for Swarmalika is given in the Notations column of the List of Raagas table. If you visit raagabasics on you will be able to find the audio post directly. e.g. Raag Kedar AalapTane or swarmalika etc.

Thank you for visiting our blog. We welcome your comments and suggestions to make this blogspot better.

Thank You & Happy Singing!
