Raga Hemant

   About Raga Hemant

Raga Hemant 

Raag Hemant is a very melodious Raag. In Raag Kaushik - Dhwani when Pancham and Rishabh are used in Avroh, Raag Hemant is conceived. In this Raag, Rishabh is used as a straight note like G R S whereas use of Pancham is somewhat Alp and is used either in Meend or as a Kan-Swar like D (P)m or m (P)m.

Hemant (winter) is embedded in Sarangdeva’s shloka on Bhinna Shadaj: 'Having Brahma for its presiding deity, it is sung on the occasions of universal festivity in the first quarter of the day in winter (Hemant) to express terror (bhayanaka) and disgust (bibhatsa)'.

This Raag creates a deep and soothing atmosphere which may be easily expandable in all the octaves.

The basic idea in Hemant is the positioning of pancham and rishab in the downward locus of Bhinna Shadaj. The swara-lagav of pancham is measured, and occasions great delight if done right. Hemant is a madhyam-pradhana raga and a little thought shows that a murchhana on madhyam gives rise to an avirbhava (onset, appearance) of Raga MaruBihag.

Raga Hemant has generally been performed in evening concerts, after sunset.
