About Thaat Asavari

Add Komal Dhaivat to Kafi thaat and you get Asavari Thaat.  Asavari is not a raga but ragni and is full of tyag, the mood of renunciation and sacrifice as well as pathos. It is best suited for late morning. However, important evening/night ragas like Darbari and Adana also use notes of asavari thaat with different styles, stress points and ornamentation.

Raga/Ragni Asavari

Asavari is not a raga but ragni and ragni asavari is derived from thaat asavari (Parental scale). Still we can call it raga asavari to some extent. Its Vaadi (main note) is d and Samvaadi (second in importance) is g and important Anuvaadi is P. Its Jaati (class) is Audav-Sampoorn. Its time of performance is late morning. Its Pakad is R m P n d P. It is played from madh – taar saptak. Its bhaav is Shad-Madhyam. Ragni Asavari evokes the moods depicting yearning for love, anguish, and melancholy. Ragni Asavari is effective in eliminating the impurities of blood and related diseases.

There is considerable disagreement concerning the Re. Some musicologists view is that only shuddh Re is used. There is another school, which suggests that both shauddh and komal can be used and some are of the view that only the komal Re be used. However, it is recommended to use Shuddh R. The overall mood is perceived as either a sad raga or just a serious raga. The raga closest to raga asavari is Jaunpuri.
