Bhairavi


Bhairavi is a janya rāgam in Carnatic music (musical scale of South Indian classical music). Though it is a sampoorna rāgam (scale having all 7 notes), it has two different dhaivathams in its scale, and hence is not classified as a melakarta rāgam (parent scale).
This is one of the ancient rāgams, said to have been prevalent about 1500 years ago. There are numerous compositions in this rāgam.
Structure and Lakshana
It is considered a janya of the 20th melakarta Natabhairavi. Its ārohaṇa-avarohaṇa structure is as follows (see swaras of Carnatic music for details on below notation and terms):
  • ārohaṇa: S R2 G2 M1 P D2 N2 S
  • avarohaṇa: S N2 D1 P M1 G2 R2 S
The notes used are chathusruthi rishabham, sadharana gandharam, shuddha madhyamam, chathusruthi dhaivatham & shuddha dhaivatham and kakali nishadham. Note the use of both dhaivathams, chathusruthi (D2) in ārohaṇa and shuddha (D1) in avarohaṇa.

Popular Compositions

Bhairavi has been decorated with numerous compositions by almost all composers. Viriboni varnam in ata talam by Pacchimiriam Adiyappa is commonly sung at the beginning of a concert and is very popular. Given below are a few very popular compositions among the 100s in this ragam.

Dear Sir,

I was listening to all of your songs listed under Bhariavi. All the songs were great and the quality was good. While listening to that , I found that some of the songs are repeated.

For instance,Songs 1 and 7, 50 and 57 are one and the same or the link is pointing to the same song even though the song names are mentioned different.

Sorry for pointing out the mistakes.Thought of making your work perfect by pointing out.

Thanks,
S.Sriram

You were right, and I have corrected them. The seven is changed and it is 54 and not 57 was a repetition. I have corrected that also. Thanks for pointing out the error. Please keep informing meif there are some more mistakes if you come across.

Sir,

Thanks for such a good upload. but I found some songs under wrong Ragas. For instance Raave himagiri kumari by T M Krishna is a swarajathi in TOdi by Syama sastri. Correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,
Srilatha Vijay
