Raga Information:


Raga Ramkali (“the flower of Lord Rama”) is a raga of the Bhairav That that is played in the mornings. Specifically, this raga is played around the time that Gunakari is played.
The flow of Ramkali is a very unique one that differs greatly from other Bhairav ragas. First, no other Bhairav that raga (except for schools that include Raga Lalit in this family) has a raga that contains both tivra Ma and suddha ma.
Although the suddha ma has the stronger and frequent use, the tivra Ma slips in. This will give a “Purvi-esque” feel to the raga. In addition, both suddha Ni and komal ni are used. The suddha Ni has the greater strength.
