Raga Information:

This is a very beautiful and ancient raga which is often debated when classifying information on this. The raga has characteristics of Bhairava as it has faint Bhairava characteristics. However, the strengths of the notes used and that pinch of tivra Ma in the aroha make it feel as if it is Marwa. This raga is nominally sung in the late night, however when studying each aspect of the raga, it can be in the sung in the evening, if D was given strength. It is a beautiful union of Raga Bhairava, Marwa, and Raga Mand.
