Ganamurti on YouTube
is the third mela of Karnatic music. Its name translates to mean the idol
of music, and it certainly is majestic, sharing the same upper tetrachord
as Bhairava, in Hindustani music, combined with the use, in effect, of both
shuddha and tivra rishaba anchored by madhyama, panchama and shadja. I found
this mela quite restless and demonstrative.
