Raga Name: Bilas Khani Todi
Raga Bilas Khani Todi is a very interesting raga, as many confusion has come from it. This raga is based on Carnatic raga Hanumana Todi, which is the Carnatic equivalent of North Indian Bhairavi. However, it wasn’t recognized by Bilas Khan, son of famous musician Miyan Tansen, hence the name “Bilas-Khani Todi.” The format of the raga is very similar to ragas that are Bhairavi in notes (no tivra ma), but have the flow of Todi. Bhupala Todi is also in this format as well.
