Raag Description: The Raag name Jogiya came from Jogi, a corrupt name for Yogi. One can appreciate the characteristic mood of devotion and detachment created by this Raag.

Madhyam is powerful, a nyas Swar as well as a Vadi Swar. Jogiya has Rishabh and Dhaivat Komal like Raag Bhairav, however they are not oscillated here. In Avroh, Shuddha Nishad is Alp and is always used as a Kan Swar of Komal Dhaivat like: S' (N)d P. Sometimes Komal Nishad is also used as a Kan Swar with Komal Dhaivat like: m P d (n)d m ; m r S to enhance the beauty of this Raag. R-m and d-m are rendered in Meend.

This Raag is expandable in Madhya and Tar Saptaks. This Raag creates a heavy atmosphere, however it is suitable for Thumri, Bhajans and Dadra etc. Following combinations are illustrative:
