Kirana

Founders: Nayak Dhondhu & Nayak Bhannu

Essential Features:Lineage includes beenkars and sarangi players.

Systematic elaboration and delineation of a raag.

Improvisation in the vilambit laya is a speciality. Slow spacious alaaps employing meendkari. Style renowned for its melody and sweetness.

The emphasis on sur has led to a rather subtle tempo and rhythmic pattern, both factors allowing for the sentiment and mood of the raag to be highlighted.

Sargam and taan patterns commonly employed. Influence of sarangi clearly discernable in the stylistic characteristics of certain exponents.
