Raga Basant Mukhari

 

 

 

 Raga Basant Mukhari is a sweet melodious form among morning Ragas. It is however difficult to render smoothly. The combination of Raga Bhairav as (S r G m) in Poorvang and Raga Bhairavi as (P d n S') in Uttarang demands both concentration as well as full preparation through intensive training or Riyaz.

The chalan of this Raga is like Bhairav but Rishabh and Dhaivat are not oscillating. This Raga can be expanded in all the three octaves. This Raga creates a soothing atmosphere. Inspite of the name, Raga Basant Mukhari has no relation to Raga Basant and is classified in Bhairav Thaat. This melodic form is rendered through the following combinations of notes:

r r S ; r G ; G G m ; m G m P ; P m ; P d n ; n d P m G ; r G m P m ; n d ; r' S' ; d n d P ; P m G m ; r G m P m ; G m r r S ; ,n ,d ,n S ; r G m ; G P m G r S;

Swar Notations
Swaras Rishabh, Dhaivat and Nishad Komal. Rest All Shuddha Swaras.
