The Raga deep dive courses are aimed at internalising Raga concepts. In this Raga Deepdive

course the concert favourite and attractive morning Raga Ahir Bhairav is chosen for exploration.

This is a Raga that unfolds with many hues. There is an element of pleasantness arising from the

folk origins along with the meditative nature of the Bhairav Ragaang. As a Sampoorn Raga this

Raga could pave way to create and practice a variety of Paltas. The Bada Khayal, the Chhota

Khayal along with a Jhaptaal composition are practiced in this course.
