Rasikapriya raaga - 72nd melakarta raaga :

In Carnatic Music, we have the 72 melakarta raaga classification in which the first 36 raagas have suddha madyamam(M1) and the next 36 raagas take the prathi madyamam(M2).
The last raaga in the melakartha Rasikapriya is a beautiful raaga, placed as the last raaga in the 72 melakartha system, Hence, it's

Aarohanam : S R3 G3 M2 P D3 N3 S
Avarohanam: S N3 D3 P M3 G3 R3 S

I came across this excellent video where this musician has rendered this krithi 'PARIPAHI PAHI'. Amazing voice.

'arul seyya vendum ayya' is a carnatic kriti set to rasikapriya.

Rasikapriya raaga is a rare raaga and there are very few songs in this raaga in both carnatic and film music.

In tamil film music, Maestro Ilayaraja has given a song 'Sangeethame en jeevane' from the movie Kovil Pura. Not many of us know this song as the movie was a big flop.

There is a song from the movie "ji" based on this beautiful pleasing raaga 'rasikapriya'. The music director 'Vidya Sagar' has excellently handled this raaga and has given a super hit song 'Ding dong kovilmani'.

Hear and enjoy the below video.
