Raga Paraj

   About Raga Paraj

Raga Paraj

Raga Paraj is a beautiful raga based on Poorvi Thaat. Proper timing of this raga is Late Night.

This is an uttaranga-pradhana raga with tonal activity clustered around tar saptaka shadaj.  In the poorvanga there are two madhyams, like Poorvi; the distinction lies in uccharana and chalan bheda.  The uttaranga has a superficial resemblance to Basant that may confuse the casual ear. 

Paraj is a chanchal prakriti raga.  Additionally, the recommended arohi locus forgoes rishab, as in N’ S G m d N.

Two Rabindra sangeet based on raga Paraj, a pre-dawn raga of the Purvi Thaat

2) Tobo Premo shudharoshe
