Raga and scales

In a classical music where emphasis is on melody made of  delicate nuances  carefully crafted and calibrated to combine  gammakams, resonance and pauses all together creating a wholesome aesthetically pleasing vibrations it is very difficult to maintain and  to express 'crystal clear and laser sharp' scales of individual notes without any aberration in the raga.

The classic example are here. Though he has rendered these two kritis hundreds of times, in this particular concert one can notice these types of scales in Kalpana swaras.

I am sharing these two as they are accessible to anyone on YouTube.
