Raga Information:

Coming from the origins of Carnatic music, Raga Patdipa is essentially like a Hindustani Kafi or Raga Misra Pilu sort. The main feature of this raga that separates it from other Kafi That ragas is that it only has suddha Ni and no instances of komal Ni. Such a change in notes gives this a unique feel compared to other Kafi That ragas. A famous song in this raga is Srila Prabhupada Gurudeva Tihare Carano Men Pranam.
