Raag Description: Raag Shyam Kalyan is a very melodious Raag. It is a mixture of Kalyan Ang and Kamod Ang (G m P G m R S).

There are few things to be kept in mind while singing Shyam Kalyan. Gandhar is not forbidden in Aaroh, still one should not render G M P N S', rather R M P N S' is rendered. Gandhar is used in Aaroh like G m P G m R S. In general, Avroh is like this: S' N D P M P D P ; G m P G m R S. In Avroh, sometimes Nishad can be skipped like - P S' S' R' S' N S' D P.

Raag Shuddha Sarang is nearest to this Raag, where Dhaivat is taken as Kan-Swar in Avroh. Whereas in Shyam Kalyan Dhaivat is rendered Deergh as in Kalyan Ang. Presence of Gandhar in Shyam Kalyan also separates it from Shuddha Sarang. Following combinations are illustrative of the Raag:

S ,N S R M P ; M P D P ; M P N S' ; S' R' S' N D P ; M P D P ; G m R ; ,N S R S ; P D P P S' S' R' S' ; S' R' S' D P M P ; R M P N S' ; N S' D D P ; S' N D P ; M P G m P ; G m R ; R ,N S;
