Carnatic Raga: Ratipatipriya

A simple, beautiful and haunting raga, Ratipatipriya has caught my attention for a long time now, and here is an attempt to group together some renditions in this raga.

1. Legend M. S. Subbulakshmi singing Katrinile Varum Geetham, in the movie Meera in 1945, where she has even acted in the tile role of Meera. This song also has shades of Sindhu Bhairavi, but is primarily Ratipatipriya:

2. Rajesh Vaidhya on his Veena, with a dramatic fusion of Ratipatipriya:

3. Possibly the most well known kriti in this raga, Jagajjanani Shukapani Kalyani, by Ghanam Krishna Iyer, rendered by C. S. Sanjeev here:

4. Dr. Rukmini and Ramani singing Srinivasa Govinda in the same raga, a Papanasam Sivan creation:

5. Another legendary Carnatic singer and Tamil actor , M. K. Tyagaraja Bhagavathar singing a song in Ratipatipriya in the 1942 movie Sivakavi:

Great compilation of songs in ratipatipriya. I think katrinile varum geetham ( Meera) is also another great ratipatipriya??
