Raga Harmony with


‘Raga Harmony’ is a creation of Dr. L Subramaniam, India’s violin icon and creator of the Global Fusion idiom. It is a unique amalgam of the rich melodic conception of Indian classical music – the raga, to which the Western classical concept of harmony is applied and rhythmically structured using the complex poly-rhythms of South Indian classical music. A harmony is created while being within the bounds of a raga, thus bringing together the best of the west and east. Raga Harmony has been used by Dr. Subramaniam in most of his crossover classical works like Fantasy on Vedic Chants, Shantipriya, Isabella violin concerto, Spring Rhapsody, Global Symphony, and Bharat Symphony.
