Durga is a raga in Hindustani Classical music. It is called Shuddha Saveri in the south.

Origin[edit]

The raga emerges from Bilawal thaat.

Technical description[edit]

The raga is of Audav-audav nature, i.e., both its arohana (ascent) and avarohana (descent) use only five notes. All the swaras used are shuddha. Gandhar and Nishad are not used. It is a Purvanga pradhan raga, with the lower notes on the saptak (octave) being used more frequently.

Arohana: Sa Re Ma Pa Dha Sa.

Avarohana: Sa Dha Pa Ma Re Sa.

Pakad: Re Ma Pa Dha, Ma Re.

The vadi swara is Dha, and the samvadi is Re.

Samai (Time)[edit]

The raga is to be sung during late night.
