Raag Sohani by Kalapini Komkali

Thanks to Sapna Mukherjee, my friend in Delhi, for sharing this lovely Raag via her FB page. I took hindustani voice lessons from her mother many years ago, and I am always delighted to see Sapna’s love of music in how she continues to train classically in this delightful genre of Indian vocal music.

And call me strange, but the strains of the Raag somehow bring to mind Jason Mraz’s song “Life is Wonderful”. Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R08q2wzGpzk

(And please don’t be up in arms about the comparison– the two genres of hindustani classical and western pop might be oceans apart but still share a common thread)
