Raga Information:

Raga Rageshri (“queen of ragas”) is one of the mellowest ragas in Indian classical music. Raga Rageshri omits Pa completely, thus developing strong harmonic forces on ma. The harmony of Sa and ma, as well as the harmony of Dha and Ga, creates an unusual complex which creates a blissful overall environment. Some musicians will make a very spare use of suddha Ni, but not enough to water down the essence of this raga. This raga is very similar to Bageshri in structure. However, Bageshri has komal ga, and has one minor instance of Pa. The nature of this raga is devotional. The most famous composition of this raga is “He Govinda He Gopala He Govinda Rakho Sarana.”
