Raga Abhogi

An elegant raga and a janya of the 22nd melakarta, Kharaharapriya.

Abhogi is found in the Carnatic and Hindustani systems and is a raga which evokes mellow and vibrant moods. Abhogi's elegance can be seen even in the little package of the well known varnam 'Evvari Bodhana'. While this varnam is usually everyone's introduction to the raga, there are many songs that are not commonly heard. Many recent composers have composed in this raga. This programme includes many rare kritis and the very popular composition 'Sabhapatikku Veru Deivam' too, apart from information on the different facets of the raga.
