Raag Description: This Raag is also referred to as 'Miya Malhar' since it was a wonderful creation by Sangeet Samrat Miya Tansen. The combinations of the melody can really ape the vagaries of nature in the thunder of clouds and the rain torrents falling from sky onto the earth. The Shuddha Nishad of Madra Saptak makes the Raag very impressive and sweet rendering requires bold presentation of the combinations to enthral the audience with the Raag mood.

Illustrative combinations are: ,N S; ,n ,D; ,N; ,m ,P; ,n ,D; ,N ,N S; ,N; R R S; R ,D ,n ,P; ,n ,D; N S ;
