Tukhari is an India musical Raga (composition) that appears in the Sikh tradition from northern India and is part of the Sikh holy scripture called Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Every Raga has a strict set of rules which govern the number of notes that can be used; which notes can be used; and their interplay that has to be adhered to for the composition of a tune.

Tukhari was probably based on a folk tune and was very likely developed by Guru Nanak into a Raga for the singing of certain Shabads. Tukhari was used by Gur Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Ram Das Ji and Guru Arjan Dev Ji. In the SGGS, there are a total of 31 Raga compositions and this Raga is the twenty-second to appear in the series.
