   About Raga Malati Basant

Raga Malti Basant 

Raga Malti Basant, a rare fragrance of spring. Raga Malti Basant is a rare raga from the Marwa thaat. Gwalior maestro, Narayanrao Patwardhan (Book Vigyan) describes the raga as a fusion of Puriya, Basant, Hindol and Sohini.

The vadi-samvadi pair (the primary and secondary dominants) is identified as Dh and Ga. The various melodic component ragas are identified as follows:

Basant: M-GMGrS
Puriya: M-GrS-rSN
Hindol: SDNM-D
Sohini: SNrND.

This raga has been sung mainly in the Agra gharana. This raga is actually an old version of raga Basant, which used shuddha (natural) Dh instead of the komal (flat) Dh currently in use. According to Raga Vaibhav, a publication of Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, it was also known as 'Mandir Basant'. Although the raga has shades of Puriya, Sohini as well as Basant, there is no Hindol in it, it is not a compound raga.
