Raga Puriya


Raag Puriya is often referred to as king of night Raags.
Its set of Notes are exactly like Raag Marwa.
However, in this Raag, Gandhar and Nishad are Vadi and Samvadi respectively and are also Nyas Swars. G M D N ; N M G ; G M D ; G M G these are the Raag Vachak notes of Puriya.
In this Raag, N-M and D-G Sangati is observed.
Nishad is often skipped in Aaroh like G M D N D S'. A pleasant sobering atmosphere full of piety is created.
This is a Poorvang Pradhan Raag and can be expanded in Mandra and Madhya Saptaks.
Swaras Pancham Varjya. Rishabh Komal, Madhyam Teevra. Rest all Shuddha Swaras.
