• Raag Ahiri •

S-r-g-m-P-D-n-S


Somewhat resembling a ‘Bageshri komal re’, ‘Ahir Bhairav komal ga’, or ‘Patdeep komal ni’, Ahiri favours long, kaleidoscopic melodies, laden with shapes from nearby ragas. Many artists give special prominence to an ‘equilateral triangle’ of nyas (r-m-D), while also drawing from its murchana-set neighbours Patdeep, Charukeshi, and Vachaspati. Matches the Carnatic Natakapriya, although ultimate origins remain mysterious.
