Raag Description: This Raag is rendered in two independent ways: Bageshri Ang and Malkauns Ang. However Malkauns Ang is more popular which is a mixture of two Raags: Malkauns and Kanada. Rendering with good amount of Meend, Khatkas and Gamaks produce a standing sweet melodic effect on the audience.

Alap and Taans are ended with g m R S (Kanada Ang) or g m g S (Malkauns Ang). Rishabh is also taken in Aaroh occasionally as S R g m R S or R g m S.

The following combinations of notes will clearly bring out the Raag mood - ,n ,n S ; ,d ,n ,n ,d ; ,n S R R S ; ,n S R S ,d ,d ,n S g ; S g m ; m P ; m g m ; R S ; g ; m P m g m ; n d P m ; m d n S' ; n d n d ; P m g m ; m P g g m R S ; S' n d n ; d P ; P m ; P m g m P ; g P m ; g m g S ; ,d ,n R S;
