Royal Behag in the Moonlight at Kuthiramalika

Home video of the full moon rising over Maharaja Swathi Thirunal's residence, Kuthiramalika Palace at Trivandrum, Kerala, India, where his descendant Prince Rama is doing an exquisite Alap in South Indian Behag, accompanied by S.Varadarajan on the violin. As with the Behag in Varmaji's Masterpiece veena CD, "Thaanam, The Pulse of The Veena", I have always felt a special connection between Varmaji and the raga Behag. Though I haven't had the good fortune of attending many of Varmaji's live concerts, I have had the privilege of listening to him sing behag at home, accompanying himself on the Tanpura and this has been one of my most cherished experiences in life.
