Raag Description: Raag Bairagi Todi is said to be introduced by Pt. Ravi Shankar. This Raag is rather difficult to render but very melodious. By replacing Madhyam of Raag Bairagi with Komal Gandhar, Raag Bairagi Todi is conceived.

As the name suggests this Raag has Todi Ang and is classified under Todi Thaat. In this Raag, Komal Gandhar used is of lower Shruti as in Raag Todi. This Raag creates a deep and heavy atmosphere and can be expanded in all the three octaves. Following are the illustrative combinations for Raag Bairagi Todi:
