Raga Information:

Raga Multani is a very unique raga in its family of Todi ragas. Unlike most Todi ragas, this one is in the evening right before the night. The differences are far more significant that timings. In the avaroha, the komal re is incredibly flattened that it sound so close to Sa. It is even flatter than Gujari Todi or Raga Todi. Another unique feature is that unlike most Todi ragas, the stress is on Sa and Pa, which has a greater harmonic strength than the ga and dha felt in Todi and Gujari Todi. Hence, this raga has different expression than Todis.
