Raag Description: This Raag is very similar to Raag Bhairav. Rishabh and Dhaivat are less oscillating in Raag Ramkali than in Bhairav. This Raag is sung in middle and upper octave, which discriminates it from Bhairav.

In Ramkali, Teevra Madhyam and Komal Nishad are used in a specific combination in Avroh like: M P d n d P ; G m r S. Generally, Rishabh is skipped in Aaroh like: ,N S G m P. This combination makes a distinct atmosphere for Raag Ramkali :
