Raag Sankra Bharan
Essential elements of Indian music theory
Raag Sankra Bharan is the raag of Bilawal Thaat. According to one school of thought it is the Khado (six notes) Raag where Ma is virgit that means Ma is not allowed in this Raag. Some people believe that it is an Awodo Raag (five notes) and Re and Ma are not allowed.
time to sing this raag is Afternoon and early evening. This raag resembles with Raag Bahag.
Some people believe Ga is the wadi note of this raag whereas some are of the opinion that Sa is the the wadi note of this raag. In this raag the utarwang notes look fabulous when played, therefore some believe it’s time to sing is morning.
Now-a-days it is not in practice, if you sing this raag on the pattern of Awodo (5 notes) then it will resemble Malsiri but remember Dha is not played in Malsiri but in Sankra Bharan Dha is imminently used thus to separate it from the above mentioned Raag Malsiri.
