Learn Raga Asavari with Aroh, Avaroh and Bandhish

Introduction 

Raga Asavari was originated at Asavari Ghaat. For this reason Raga Asavari is also called Ashray raga from Asavari Ghaat. In this raga the swaras Ga Dha and Ni are used as komal swara.
In the Aroh the swaras Ga and Ni both are prohibited and hence only 5 swaras are used.

Aroh and Avaroh

In Avaroh all 7 swaras are used. Because of 5 swaras in Aroh and 7 Swaras in Avaroh, the Jaati of this Raga is Audhav Sampoorna.
