Ragas and Sagas is an album by Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek, featuring Ustad Fateh Ali Khan and musicians from Pakistan released on the ECM label in 1992. Listeners unacquainted with these traditions will find this recording a mesmerizingly exotic disc.
The previous section illustrated a few simple pentatonic ragas in an effort to show how you could get different melodies from sets of five notes. Raag Marwa is sung during the late afternoon hours up to sunset. It is one of the major ragas in Hindustani classical music and is taken very seriously. This makes it a very unsettling raga, mainly evoking dark moods of foreboding and anxiety.
