Prepare the original song and our teachers will guide you to polish your rendition and prepare for a performance. Raga Miyan Ki Todi: Raga Miyan Ki Todi is one of the most mesmerizing of all the Ragas. In this course, you will learn to render the famous Kabir Bhajan “Man lago yaar fakiri mein…..”, in Raga MiyanKi Todi and compare the Rasa bhava with the original tune.
