Rag Alhaiya Bilaval and Rag Mishra Bhairavi



Due to its imitation of the voice, the sarangi has traditionally been the preferred instrument to accompany singers in North Indian and Hindustani classical music. However, the sarangi is now used with increasingly popularity as a solo instrument, and the harmonium has succeeded the sarangi in its accompanying role. Although there is not yet a total acceptance of this style on the Indian music scene, players such as Ram Narayan, who has championed the solo sarangi in recent decades, are exposing its performance quite justly as a worthy solo career.
