TILAK KAMOD

by David Courtney working tools


Description

The structure of Tilak Kamod is quite pleasant.  Some musicians maintain that the vadi is Sa and the samvadi is Pa.  Others claim that Re is the vadi.  It is Shadav-Sampurna due to the omission of Dha in the arohana.  It is performed in the second part of the night.

This rag is usually attributed to Khammaj That.  However, most subtraditions within Northern India show a conspicuous absence of any Komal Ni.  Its structure places it squarely in Bilawal that.  It is with great reluctance that we bow to tradition and place this in Khammaj that.
