Raga Gujari Todi



Eliminating Pancham in Raga Todi results in the melodic atmosphere of Raga Gurjari Todi.

It is very effective in producing Karunya or Karuna Ras.

As compared to Raag Todi, Komal Rishabh is strong in Gurjari Todi and is rendered Deergh. This can be expanded in all the three octaves.

The following combinations are truly representative of this sweet melody:
S ; ,N ,d ; ,M ,d ; ,M ,N ,d ; ,N ,N S ; S r ; S r g ; g r ,N ,d ; ,d ,N ,N S ; S r g M ; d M d ; M d N S' ; d N S' ; d N S' r' ; g' r' N d ; M d N S' r' ; d S' ; d S' r' N d M ; d N d M ; g M d ; M g r S;

Swaras Pancham Varjya, Rishabh, Gandhar and Dhaivat Komal, Madhyam Teevra. Rest all Shuddha Swaras.
