Raag Description: This is a very melodious Raag. In music literature, Raag Rageshree is said to have both Shuddha and Komal Nishads. But these days artists choose to sing Rageshree mostly with Komal Nishad and use Shuddha Nishad rarely.

In Avroh, S' n D m G R S may also be taken. However, these days S' n D m G m R S seems to be more popular. Madhyam is strong and D-G Sangati is Raag Vachak like: m G ; m D G ; G m n D ; G m R S. Sometimes in Aaroh, Rishabh is used as a Kan swar for Gandhar like: S G (R)G m R S.

Sometimes a varient of this Raag is sung using Pancham and is known as Pancham-Rageshree, like: G m P m G m R S ; S' n D m G m P m G m R S. However, this is very rarely heard these days. These are the illustrative combinations of the Raag:
