Raag Description: This is not a commonly known Raag. The nearest Raags are Pradeepki, Dhanashri and Bheempalasi. This Raag is sung with a Dhanashri Ang. m P n D P ; S' n D P ; m P G R S' these combination of notes indicate Dhanashri Ang. Raag Hans Kinkini is shown to differ from Raag Dhanashri by using Komal Gandhar (m p g R S).

Raag Hans Kinkini also displays Pancham-Gandhar Sangati, because of which it shows a glimpse of Raag Pilu. In Raag Pilu one renders the notes P g ,N S but in Raag Hans Kinkini one renderes P g R S.

Being a flittering volatile melody it becomes more effective when one employs Khatke and Murkiyan in its presentation. Following are the illustrative combinations:
