Raga Information:

Raga Tilaka Kamod is a raga welcoming the auspicious celebrations in the night. This auspicious raga has an unusual form, as the original form of this raga is said to have four notes in aroha and avaroha starts midway barely going upwards. Due to Bharata Munis standards in his musical treatise Brhad-desi, the raga had to include the Ni in the aroha, and the flexibility of the avaroha had to be incorporated. Still, the raga is still strongly purvanga based and it will barely ever hit any note beyond komal ni of the madhya saptak. A famous bhajan in this raga is Ohe Harinam Tava Mahima Apar.
