Raga Yaman - How it Sounds

I'll start with this raga by showing some examples to listen to. If you want to understand a raga you need to start to understand the feelings and emotions it conveys.

This is a video of one of my favourite sitarists, Shujaat Khan, son of the legendary Ustad Vilayat Khan. This is a very unusual rendition of Yaman, as usual Shujaat's style sets him apart from most other musicians






The next one is a beautiful version and I think it displays the characteristics of Yaman very well. Shivkumar Sharma & Shafaat Ahmed Khan -



Yaman Kalyan is technically (depending on who you ask) a different raga than Yaman but the difference is so slight that it's hardly worth mentioning here at the moment. Such an incredible performance by Ustad Imrat Khan -




Another master of Indian music - Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar



Lovely flute rendition -



A nice bit of sarod -
