Music of Sangeetendu
Dr. Lalmani Misra
Madhukali is a Raga consecrated by Sangeetendu Dr. Lalmani Misra, the celebrated Vichitra Veena virtuoso, on basis of classical principles of note-consonance . It blends Madhuvanti, Multani and Ramkali . Madhuvanti is reflected in lower tetrachord with natural Second; Multani is in the upper tetrachord with Flat Sixth with application of a unique Ramkali phrase.
Indicative composition in Raga Madhukali can be found in Raga-Rang section on Omenad.
The Raga-s created by Dr. Misra satisfy all vital conditions and are considered Shastrokta (as mandated).
The virtuoso, in constant quest for accurate musical expression, also created a technique for string instruments that allows an overlay of yet another layer. He organized and expanded the traditional stroke work to create rhythmic cycles. This style is known as MISRABANI.
