1. Debut studio album
Divine Raaga released their debut studio album, I'm Divine Raaga, on the 18th of July, 2014. After years of writing original music, they have come up with 7 of their choicest compositions.
The emphasis in this album has been on story-telling. Each song has a different tale to tell. Most of the songs are based on prominent Raagas of Hindustani classical music, while some are based on different folk forms. But the arrangement is such that it keeps the overall sound of the album as contemporary as you'd like.
The album features a consortium of many Indian traditional instruments, some of them being the Esraj, the Hindustani bamboo flute (Baansuri), the Morching, the Khanjira and the conch shell (Shankh). But for those of you who love to groove to the sound of heavy rhythms and riffs, or to feel the bass thump your hearts - there's a lot in store for you too!
2. Debut live album
Shortly after "I'm Divine Raaga", the band came up with their debut live album, titled "Divine Raaga LIVE", on the 30th of April, 2015. As the name gives it away, all the music that features in this album was recorded live, for the episodes featuring Divine Raaga, at the sets of Music Mojo!
The rendition of each song in this live album is significantly different from its studio album equivalent. Each song has been reinterpreted to discover alternative musical expressions, and this keeps the aesthetics of a live performance intact.
The album also showcases some exotic Carnatic percussion instruments bringing in a flavor that's quite complementary to the 'more Hindustani' sound of the debut band's studio album!
