Raga Information:

Raga Dhani is considered as a “sweet and romantic version of Raga Malkauns.” Raga Malkauns is very devotional in nature, while Raga Dhani is very romantic in nature. One can study the notes and see the transposition of MalkaunsSa to Dhani’s Pa. To add some difference, some musicians sparingly include shuddha Re. This has some hidden moments where it can confuse the listener to think it is Raga Malkauns or even Raga Bhimpalasi.
