Raag Description: This is a very sweet morning Raag which is also referred to as Asawari Todi. It is similar to Raag Bilaskhani Todi except that in Aaroh, instead of Madhyam and Nishad Varjya, Gandhar and Nishad are Varjya. The Avroh is same with Pancham Varjya in both the Raags.

This Raag belongs to Bhairavi Thaat. In Poorvang, Todi Ang appears like: S r g ; g r ; g r S and Asawari Ang appears in Uttarang. In this Raag, Shadj (Sa) is usually omitted in Avroh like: S' r' n d ; d S' r' g' r' n d. In this Raag Pancham is the Nyas Swar, however Pancham is skipped in Avroh, like S r m P ; P d P ; P d n d m g r ; r g r S. Although Nishad is Varjya in Aaroh, it is sometimes used as Anuwadi Swar like: r' n S r' g' or r ,n S r.

This is a Meend Pradhan Raag. This Raag can be expanded in all the three octaves. The atmosphere created by this Raag is deep and soothing. The notes as given hereafter literally create a live image of this Raag:
