This composition is based on the Hindustani classical raga named Bhimpalasi. It is a popular raga of the late afternoon. A raga is an Indian melodic tone structured in a way that can be compared with Western scales. Each raga is an array of melodic structures with musical motifs, considered in the Indian tradition to have the ability to "colour the mind" and affect the emotions of the audience.
The Western equivalent of Bhimpalasi is the modal Dorian key. In this song, Raj Mohan sings raga Bhimpalasi and the other Western musicians play in E Dorian (E minor with an augmented 6). Western music knows about 10 to 15 scales that are often used. Indian classical music has thousands of ragas.

For users looking to simply drag and drop, the 'wet' files contain all of the effects processing heard in the audio demos. But for producers looking to create their own effects mix, 'dry' loops are also included where possible.
With the included OMF file you can import each audio clip into your sequencer at precisely the right location, allowing you to re-structure the original song, or add your own complementary instrumentation.
All of the loops in this product are 100% royalty-free (including the vocal loops), so once purchased, you can use these loops in your commercial releases without having to pay any hidden costs.
