Multani is a Hindustani classical raga. The newer raga Madhuvanti was inspired by Multani. Multani is a very melodious Raga belonging to Todi Thaat. But, it does not have any shadow of Todi Ang. It is a Meend Pradhan Raga.
N S (M)g (M)g (S)r S is the Raga Vachak Swar Sangati of Multani, with Komal Rishabh receiving a Kan of Shadj and Komal Gandhar receiving a Kan of Madhyam Teevra using Meend. As Komal Gandhar receives a Kan of Madhyam Teevra, it is at higher shruti then the regular Komal Gandhar. In this Raga, Rishabh and Dhaivat are Alp and in Avroh, Rishabh always receives a Kan of Shadj.
Pancham is an important note and is rendered like - P (M)P (M)g P ; g M g P ; (P)d (M)P. Aalaps and Taans are often started with Mandra Nishad. This Raga creates a heavy atmosphere and is perfect for devotional compositions. This Raga can be expanded in all the three octaves.
