The Raga deep dive courses are aimed at internalising Raga concepts. Raga Shree leaves a student with no option but deep dive. This Raga can be identified distinctly, the unique melody takes shape not just by the Swara Samoohas but the Shrutis or microtones. This is true with the Ragadaari Sangeet. Raga Shree is a deeply meditative evening Raga, with rich emotional content. The Raga demands a voice culture and Samskaras with unusual combinations of Swaras. This can be achieved by singing a variety of patterns of Paltas. Listening and absorbing the Raga into ones system is essential for Ragas like Shree.The Aalap Badahat is sung in all three Saptaks. The Bandishes chosen for learning would help the student to visualise the persona of this Raga.
