September is a  month of classical music.  What will be classical music without Raags?
 
 
 

**** Informations Regarding Raags****
 
 
 Total number of raags in Hindustani classical music was beleived to be 300. But most  of them are  lost over the centuries. Around  100 raags are known and performed in present times.  The  classification of most raags in thaats is universally accepted, opinions are still  vary among the experts for some raags. The same is also  true about performance times of some raags.
 

***Contest***
 We begin with very simple contest.
 Name 10 Raags, their classification in Thaat and  their performance time.

Example of thaat will be todi, kafi, kalyan etc.
Example of performance time can be morning, afternoon, evening etc.
Pm your answers to "crazycreative"
by September 23rd.
subject "Classical Music Contest 1"

 All the best. Enjoy.Smile
Another fun contest is on the way before the month ends.

Thaat are musical scale or framwork
    A Thaat must have seven notes out of the twelve notes [Seven Shuddha, Four komal (Re, Ga, Dha , Ni), one teevra (Ma) ], placed in an ascending order. Both the forms of the notes can be used. Thaat has only an Aaroha. Thaats are not sung but the raags produced from the Thaats are sung. Thaats are named after the popular raag of that Thaat. For example Bhairavi is a popular raag and the thaat of the raag Bhairavi is named after the raag.
