Here I am listing some 'Basic Level' exercises on raag Yaman.
'Basic Level' raagas contain aroha-avaroha-pakad (as an introduction to a raaga), a swarmala (to start learning tabla taals) and a chhota khayal which is a bandish (composition) in drut laya (fast pace). 'Intermediate' and 'Advanced' levels have khayals in vilambit laya (slow pace) alongwith alaaps and taans. Soon, I will add few links for theory and some info on this raag. I will also add audio files to get an idea about speed of taals and the way to sing.
