Hi, This raga was composed by Late Pandit Ravi Shankarji, our beloved Guruji. Raga Bairagi, created in 1949, is a morning raga. Thanking you, Ravi Shankar Institute for Music and Performing Arts 7, Chanakya Puri New Delhi.

Incredible ... from the pre-dawn he brings us till the bright sun rising till its brightest rays streaks forth as if thru the fingers of Khan sahab - incredible kehlo yaa divine its all the same ... and true of all his recitals all notes have a peculiar purity about them very easily you coud say God playing Sarod !!

This is very much like the Raga Revathi in Carnatic music except that some of the nuances are slightly different. There is a composition attributed to the composer Annamcharya that M.S Subbalakshmi popularized. This is playing of the highest order and gravitas.

A PENTATONIC PRE-DAWN DIAMOND( WITH KOMAL RE AND KOMAL NI; AND OMITTING GA AND DHA ALTOGETHER) - IS ATTRIBUTED TO LATE PANDIT RAVI SHANKAR.

A PIECE OF PERENNIAL MUSIC  OF THE PRE-DAWN BLISS FOR HUMANITY.

To rliesky56: This is superb! Even better is Raga Aheer Bhairow on the same album. Could you please upload that one? Ali Akbar Khan's other (earlier and later) recordings of that raga are not as good. I think that recording of Aheer Bhairow was the best of all his recordings.
