Raga Information:

Originally from the Carnatic system of music, Raga Sivaranjani is a common meditative and deep raga which is sung in the nights. It also represents melancholy and anguish due to the small number of notes in the raga. Sometimes, people tend to use shuddha ga in conjunction with komal ga to create a tension-release feel. In addition, although rarely used, komal dha can be used as a grace note. Those who play with shuddha ga and komal dha grace notes in this raga are known to be playing Raga Misra Sivaranjani, while the notes S, R, g, P, and D only are found in pure Sivaranjani.
