Raga Description

 Raga Madhuvanti is a fairly recent melody. Earlier it was known as Raga Ambika. It is a sweet melodic combination with fair degree of freedom for development into an impressive mellifluous mood with wide public appeal. This is a playful Raga full of romantic, loving sentiments.

The nearest Raga is Raga Multani. Using Rishabh and Dhaivat Shuddha in Raga Multani, Raga Madhuvanti appears. While rendering Rishabh in Avroh, Shadj (Sa) is used as a Kan swar, particularly in Alaps like: M g SR S.
