   About Raga Pahadi

Raga Pahadi

Raga Pahadi is said to belong to Bilawal thaat. Superficially, Pahadi has the same notes as do Bhopali and Deshkar and Shuddha kalyan (Mohana Kalyani). Raga Pahadi is sung with Ma as Sa, (like Piloo). Having done that, it is sung chiefly in the lower and middle octaves, With Ma as its Sa, Dha now becomes Ga, which can be treated as the vadi. Stressing the lower Dha makes this raga beautiful. 

Raga Pahadi is a popular raga based on folk music. As its name suggests, it originates from the mountainous region of Himalayas. It resembles two other ragas which exude the rich cultural heritage of folk music: Mand from the Rajasthan region and Pilu from the Hindi heartland. It is a light raga and resembles more like a ‘dhun’. It is very popular in Hindi music and sometimes simulates multiple echoes.

Pahadi is mostly sung in the lower and middle octaves. This raga is like a lover, unruffled in union, serene in separation, powerful enough to achieve eternal union, but resigned to the painful parting ordained by destiny.

Pahadi, a Kashimiri folk melody in its origin, is a simple raga - one may think of it as a ‘dhoon’. On the other hand, however, proper and dignified treatment elevates it to the rightful, lofty and esteemed stature of an exquisite raga - beautiful, intense, elegant and delicate. Its aesthetic atmosphere is radically distinctive and without equal. It is not a major raga in the sense of Darbari, Yaman, Bihag etc.

The following tonal sentence captures the essence of Pahadi, it denotes swaras of the mandra saptaka

S, S R D' S D' P', D' G' P' D' S... R G M G, S D' P' M' G', G' P' D' S...

The shuddha nishad often imparts a tinge of Mand

S, D' N' P' D' S, G P DNPD S" D P G M G
