An Irish Raga (2011) 5-10′
for Solo Guitar
An Irish Raga is not notated, it’s a piece that’s in my head and it is mainly improvised around some melodic figures in Irish and Indian modal scales. Therefore every performance of the piece is quite different.
The version presented here was created in 2020 during the Covid Pandemic lockdown. It also came a year after I had visited India for the first time, where I learnt a lot more about Carnatic music, specifically South Indian traditions.
