Raga Adana



Aroha:
Sa Re Ga(Komal) Ma Pa Ni(Komal) Pa *Sa*

Avroh:
*Sa* Dha(Komal) Ni(Komal) Pa Ga(Komal) Ma Re Sa

Indian classical raga Adana is also called Adana kanada.


It is often sung or played in drut laya after a vilambit composition in raga Darbari, as Adana is straighter than Darbari in its chalan, thus allowing faster passages.



The flow of this raga is similar to a mix of Madhyamad Saranga with Darbari.



Another common vivadi some artists use sparingly is shuddha ni which enhances the Saranga mood of the raga.



The Vadi note is Shajad - Sa



The Samavadi note is Pancham - Pa


The best time to sing this raga is known to be late night (12 am - 3 am)
