Raga Pilu

Pilu or Peelu or Piloois a raga of Hindustani classical music. Raga Pilu is a light raga commonly used to express joy, devotion, happiness and love.  It is mostly used in light-classical forms, like the Khayal, of north Indian classical style. Raga Pilu is a light classical raga or thumri that is quite varied. Like Bhairavi, all the 12 notes can be used in a composition. Since the structure of the raga is left to the artist's style and interpretation, it is sometimes referred to as Misra Pilu (‘mixed version of Pilu’) which incorporates not only the main notes but grace notes like komal re, suddha Ga, tivra Ma, komal dha, and both Ni's. Many Krishna Bhajans, Bhakti sangeet and folk and love songs are based on this raga.

In raga Pilu, ,P ,N S g ; g R S ,N ; ,N S - are the raga Vachak notes. In this raga nyas on Komal Gandhar and Shuddha Nishad of Mandra Saptak, at once creates the raga mood. In this raga Komal Nishad is used with Shuddha Dhaivat and Shuddha Nishad is used with Komal Dhaivat.

 This raga is expandable in Mandra and Madhya Octaves. Pilu is used extensively in folk songs of UP and Bihar. Many of the traditional wedding songs of this region are based on Pilu. Often related to the monsoon season, this raga is popular in the occasion of Hindu festival 'Holi' (Phalguna (February - March) month) also known as Raga of colours for its smpoorna jaati and blissful nature.
