• Raag Salagavarali •

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


A rareAhiri no ma’ scale, combining a Todi-like poorvang with an Ahir Bhairavic uttarang. As per Rajan Parrikar: “S.N. Ratanjankar conceived of this raga…Ma is eliminated to yield the following contour: SrgPDnDS; SnDPg(P)rgrS. Brilliantly exploited by Jitendra Abisheki in a celebrated natyageeta. Watch out for the injection of a vivadi dosha via tivra Ma”. Likely derived from the swara-congruent Shadvidhmargini (‘one with the path to a hundred forms of knowledge’), the 46th Carnatic melakarta.
