Did you know that Narumugaye from the movie Iruvar (A R Rahman) was on a raga that was as “gambeeram” as Gambhira Nattai? I think it is!
Yet another song from the movie Singaravelan, Innum Ennai Enna Seyya (Ilayaraja) should also be the same raga.
Gambira nattai is derived from Chala Nattai. It differs from the raga Nattai on a Ri. The scale is –
Aarohanam: S G3 M1 P N3 S
Avarohanam: S N3 P M1 G3 S
Listen to the classical rendition of Sri Vighna Rajam Bhaje is a Oothukkadu Venkata Subbayyar composition in Gambhira Nattai, fast-paced and set in Thisra nadai.
