Ragas : Darbari

updated on Dec 24, 2014

Raga Darbari, also called Darbari Kanhada is one of the most melodious ragas in Hindustani music. The raga is said to have been created by Miyan Tansen in the royal court, or darbar, of Akbar, and hence given the name "darbari". The raga requires "andolan" or "a light shake/oscillations" for komal ga and komal dha (marked as g~ and d~). Emphasis should be on m and P to distinguish it from other similar ragas like Adana and Jaunpuri. Also, in Adana there is very little andolan of g and overall less meend.

Raga Darbari is a late night raga. It is very difficult to master, and the emotions of this raga are mostly romantic and joy. It is a popular raga for hindi songs and ghazals.
