Some information for Singing Students - Bollywood Batch / General Batch
"Ragas are born from Thaats - so what are Thaats?" Thaats are like sets of a particular notes. From each of these Thaats are born 100s of Ragas which have all the primary qualities of the Thaat it is derived from.
In Hindustani Classical music there are 10 Thaats. 10 - Thaats - Bilawal Thaat / Khamaj Thaat / Kafi Thaat / Asawari Thaat / Bhairavi Thaat / Bhairav Thaat / Marwa Thaat / Poorvi Thaat / Todi Thaat and Yaman Kalyan Thaat.
For example Raga Bhoop (also known as Bhupali Raga) is derived from Kalyan Thaat. So it will only have the notes from Thaat Kalyan, any note than dosent belong to Thaat Kalyan will not be present in Bhoop Raga.
By the way Thaat Kalyan = s r g M p d n s' M - Tivra Ma and remaining swars are shuddha swaras So any Raga coming from Thaat Kalyan will have some or all of these notes only no other notes (there are exceptions though like Mishra ragas but we will not discuss that right now) 'Bhoop' Raga has s r g p d s' notes. These notes are taken from Thaat Kalyan.
Some Ragas have 5 Notes - Pentatonic or Audav Raga Some Ragas have 6 Notes - Shadav Ragas Some Ragas have all 7 notes of Thaat - Sampoorna Ragas. 'Bhoop' Raga is a pentatonic Raga as it is made of 5 notes.
Some Ragas are Seasonal (meant to be sung in particular Season) Ragas have a particular samay when it is supposed to be sung. Like Bhoop Raga is a night time Raga.
All ragas are forms of expressions of different Rasa's from the Navras.. which has different ras such as Karuna Ras, Vir Ras etc showing emotions and expressions. For example Bhoop Raga demonstrates Bhakti Ras.
Ragas are basically a structure of notes with certain rules. They can only be sung when we sing a song composed using those Raga notes and rules. These songs composed in the ancient time are called as Bandishes / Taranaas.
If you find difficult to sing Bandish or Taranaa at the start follow the given plan -
1 - First practice Singing Aaroh and Avaroh of each Raga. For example for Bhoop Raga the Aaroh is s r g p d s' and avaroh is s' d p g r s.
2 - Then start listening to film songs composed in that Raga and practice singing it. For example songs like Main Jahan Rahu from Namastey London or Dekha ek khwaab to hai -Silsila or Dil hun hun Re - Rudaali for female singers or the famous Jagjit Singh bhajan "hey govind hey gopal" There are also different taals like teentaal Dadra etc to be used when singing Bandish we will discuss this later. Hope you are not bored by now. But it is important to know the Hindustani Classical Music structure so then you can imagine its complexity and why it takes 10 years to study I would say even 10% of it.
