About the CD

Thaat is one of the most fundamental bases of classification in the Hindustani classical system. Developed by the learned musicological Vishnu Narayan Bhatkande, that offers a framework to classify several ragas based on their musical scales. The Hindustani classical music system has thus, 10 thaat-s. each that is a raga in itself and stands as a proud parent to several raga that belongs to its family.

This album features vocal renditions of the popular ragas belonging to the Khamaj thaat by the legends of classical music.

Khamaj Thaat

The Khamaj that consist of seven notes where the 7th note 'Ni' (nishad) is komal (flat). The ragas belonging to the Khamaj that bear characteristic resemblance to the musical scale of the that, but have distinctly unique features of their own, in terms of the arrangement of notes as well as the time of the day they are associated with. Raga khamaj is the prime raga of this thaat.

Pattern of swara-s in the thaat- Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni (f)

All other notes are regular
Both the flat and sharp 'Ni' are used

3. Raga Rageshree
Five notes in the ascent and six notes in the descent.
The raga uses both the flat and sharp 'Ni'
Prime note is 'Ga'
Arohana (ascent)- Sa Ga Ma Dha Ni Sa(h)
Avarohana (descent)- Sa(h) Ni Dha Ma Ga Re Sa

Glossary(f)- Flat note, (s)- Sharp note, (h)- high scale, (I)-Low scale
Sa-(c), Re-(D), Ga- (E), Ma-(f), Pa-(G), Dha-(a), Ni-(b)

The 10 thaat-s are: Bilwal, Kalyan, Khamaj, Bhairav, Purvi, Marwa, Kafi, Asavari, Bhairavi and Todi.

Although entire ragas in themselves, the thaat-s provide a framework for the system as a whole. The notation of a thaat, which describes its musical framework, is quite different from the characteristic arrangement and progression of notes during rendition through a raga. It is exposition that gives a raga its pakad (peculiarity) and chalan (character). Every thaat consists of seven notes or swara-s but with different characteristics (chalan).
