Bhairavi (Hindi: भैरवी) (Urdu: بَھیرَوی ‎) (Sindhi: راڳ ڀيروي) is a Hindustani Classical heptatonic (Sampurna) raga of Bhairavi thaat. In Western musical terms, raga Bhairavi employs the notes of the Phrygian mode, one of the traditional European church modes. The woman on the right symbolises Subhadra, and the woman on the left symbolises Lakshmi.
