Raga Saat by Derek CharkeFor 4 C FlutesIncludes score and partsDuration: about 9:30
Raga Saat is a companion work to Raga Cha. Similarly, Raga Saat is not based on an authentic Raga, but rather attempts to emulate the sound world through the use of various extended flute techniques. It is repetitive and meditative in character. Raga Saat is in 7/8 time. Saat is the English translation of the number seven in Hindi. Raga Saat plays with several polyrhythmic patterns that define the rhythmic flavor of the piece.
