The Raga Darbari, said to be created by Miya Tansen, results in a sweet and heavy atmosphere.
In this Raga, Gandhar and Dhaivat are the two prominent notes which have oscillating character. In Aaroh, Gandhar is rendered with a Kan of Rishabh and Dhaivat is rendered with a Kan of Pancham. Whereas in Avroh, Gandhar is rendered with a Kan of Madhyam and Dhaivat with Kan of Nishad.
Dhaivat is skipped in Avroh like S' (n)d n P. This is a Gamak and Meend Pradhan Raga and is generally expanded in Mandra and Madhya Saptaks. The following notations are considered illustrative in Raga manifestation:
