Raga Rageshree

Raga Rageshree or  Rageshri or Rageshwari is a Hindustani raga that has evolved and become popular in the past century. It has come to be known as the 'Queen of Ragas'.

The name Raageswari is a beautiful compliment to the musical scale this raga is based on. First it belongs to one of the most charasmatic set of notes of the Thaat Khammaj. The structure of the notes are so alluring that it has been one of the main 'Go To' ragas for those light romantic moods. 

Rageshree is a Hindustani classical raga, from the Khamaj thaat. It is pentatonic in aaroha, hexatonic in avaroha. This Raga is a very melodious Raga. In music literature, Raga Rageshri is said to have both Shuddha and Komal Nishads. But these days artists choose to sing Rageshri mostly with Komal Nishad and use Shuddha Nishad very rarely.

In Avroh, S’ n D m G R S may also be taken. However, these days S’ n D m G m R S seems to be more popular. Madhyam is strong and D-G Sangati is Raag Vachak like: m G ; m D G ; G m n D ; G m R S. Sometimes in Aaroh, Rishabh is used as a Kan swar for Gandhar like: S G (R)G m R S.
