A “Triswara” tune

Can an entire tune be composed using only three notes?

Ilayaraja makes it possible – watch the latest video added to our Videos page, where he performs his composition of a Triswara tune using only the first three notes Sa-Re-Ga. He is accompanied in the vocals by our own Shreya Ghoshal.

Thanks to Chalu for letting us have this wonderful video from his collection.

By the way – does anyone know the relation between Santanu and Triswara? (Chalu knows – so he doesn’t qualify to answer)
