Begabaro (Mand) – Carnatic Vocal by Krish Iyengar
Begabaro (Maand) Maand is supposed to have evolved from Rajasthani folk music. Maand is a feisty raga, popular in North India and well-known for lighter pieces in the South. It is delightful to the listener and performer alike. It brings forth the mood of romance, combined with cheer and warmth. Maand is often spiced up with foreign notes to make it “misra” Maand, like “chai” becomes “masala chai.” The notes that feature in the conventional Maand raga include Sadja, Suddha Rishabha, Antara Gandhara, Suddha Madhyama, Panchama, Chatusruti Dhaivata, and Kakali Nishada, and not in that order. It is the zigzag patterns in this raga that give rise to a feeling that only can be compared with enjoying a swing on a trapeze.
