Sanjoy Bandopadhyay, sitar, has shared the audio for a lesson given to his advanced student, Rajrupa Chowdhury, sarod.
"In this recording you can hear about 46 minute session on Alahiya-Bilaval. The session was mainly dedicated to alap-jod, although I briefly showed three compositions."

Hey, this is great! Thank you for sharing. I have been working on this lovely raga for a while now, and I am looking forward to giving this perspective a proper listen.

I was listening to Imrat Khan's on surbahar this morning on the way in to work. It's a lovely raga to western ears...all ionian but with an occasional splash of that komal ni that spices it up nicely. Will give this a listen!

Yes, that "splash" of komal ni is so pungent. Its application is very strict, coming, as I understand it, only in the phrase: DnDnDP

So in alap you could have something like DNS----D--nDnD--P---- or DSNRNS----DnDnD--P-----
or simple taans: GPDNSNRSDnDPmGRS or SRGPDnDPDDPmGRS or SRGPDNSNDnDPmGRS

Oh yeah, and if it's not apparent already, ma is skipped in ascent. Heavy gravity on Ga makes for beautiful phrases.
RGmG, GRmG, RmGPmGmG, DmGPmGRS

Well now I'm just looking forward to the morning so that I can play it, sheesh!

Apologies if you're already familiar with the raga, I just sorta got inspired there. Otherwise, I hope these few details help you to appreciate it all the more!

Cheers,
Tomek
