shivaganga nagara nivasini

10:51 PM Posted by Vijayasri



'sivaganga nagara nivasini' is a papanasam sivam krithi set on punnagavarali raaga and adi talam.
About Punnagavarali raaga :
'Punnagavarali' raaga is a janya of 8th melakartha , Hanumathodi. This raaga gives the feel of Vilapam or Crying. There is also a belief that the snakes like this raaga and the snake charmer plays Punnagavarali to make the snake dance. There is a song 'Adu pAmbe (dance Oh Snake) which is set in this raaga. I feel 'Naga (which means snake) in the word 'Punnagavarali is not a coincidence.
