is the fifty-second mela of Karnatic music. I find its swaras wonderfully abstract,
including the uncommon pairing of tivra madhyama and komal rishaba, also found
in an earlier composition, Vachaspati. Another earlier composition, Snow Leopard Meadow, based on Ahir Bhairav, a raga
introduced to me through awesome recordings by Pandit Jasraj, shares the swaras
of Ramapriya, with the exception of madhyama in place of tivra madhayama.
