Raga Information:

Although very similar to Megha, this is a lighter version which does not create the intensity or thunder feel that Raga Megha has. As this is a Khamaja-based raga, the vivadis have greater freedom that with Raga Megha. Therefore, it is not unusual to hear an occasional suddha Dha or suddha Ga in a light-rendition of Madhyamad Saranga. Although the name of the raga (“the honey-like Saranga”) has nothing to with the note madhyama (“ma”), the preferred orientation is centered around ma and Pa.
