Majestic Kambodhi

After listening to aru marundoru in Kambodhi (or Kamboji) by Sanjay S, I was mesmerized by this raga again. There are more qualified people or/and musically knowledgeable people who can take about the aarohanam, avarohanam and the subtle nuances. Instead I will provide video clips of songs composed by different composers on kambodhi in vocal, instrumental, experienced and the upcoming artists.

I will start with Raga Lahiri series with Vidhushi Ranjani Nagaraj and her mother Dr. Nagavalli Nagaraj. (with what else Sri.Subramanyaya by the Sanskrit Scholar and Composer Dikshitar on Kambhoji )
