    6. Andolika

    Arohanam: S R2 M1 P N2 S
    Avarohanam: S N2 D2 M1 R2 S

    300px-Madhyamavati_scale.svg.png
    Ascending scale with C as Shadjam (tonic note), which is exactly same as Madhyamavathi scale.

    300px-Andholika_Avarohana_scale.svg.png
    Descending scale has D2 in place of P

    The notes in this scale are chatushruti rishabham, shuddha madhyamam, panchamam, kaisiki nishadham in arohana and additional chatushruti dhaivatam in avarohanam, in place of panchamam (see pictures). From Kharaharapriya scale (22nd melakarta), the gandharam is removed in this scale and the rest are used in asymmetrical manner. Since gandharam is removed this scale can also be considered a janya of 28thmela Harikambhoji scale, but since 22 comes ahead many prefer to use the association with Kharaharapriya.

    7. Arabhi

    Arohanam: S R2 M1 P D2 S
    Avarohanam: S N3 D2 P M1 G3 R2 S

    300px-ShuddhaSaveri_scale.svg.png
    Ascending scale with Shadjam at C

    Descending scale with Shadjam at C

    Arabhi raga is an Owdava-sampoorna raga meaning, 5 swaras occur in the arohana (so it is called Owdava) and in avarohana all swaras occur (so sampoorna).

    It is a raga without much gamakas and frequency variations, relying instead on flat notes. The important point is the swara "ga" always comes very close to "ma" so when we sing the phrase "ma ga ri it sounds like "ma ma ri". Likewise the swara "ni" always comes very close to the swara "sa" hence when we sing the phrase "sa ni da" it sounds like "sa sa da".

    The closest raga to this one is Devangandhari. There are few aspects which make Arabhi different (though both share the same ascending and descending scale, in terms of basic notation).

    you can download and listen shreeeee saraswati,a song composed in Arabhi here..

    8.Asaveri

    • avarohanam:-: S N2 S P D1 M1 P R1 G2 R1 S

    Ascending scale with shadjam at C, which is same as karnataka shudha saveri scale.

    Asaveri is an asymmetric rāgam that does not contain gandharam and nishadam in the ascending scale. It is an audava-vakra-sampurna rāgam (or owdava rāgam, meaning pentatonic ascending scale).Asaveri is an ancient rāgam.
