The Raga deep dive courses are aimed at internalising Raga concepts. In this Raga Deepdive course the ancient early morning Raga Bhairav is explored. Bhairav has a simple structure as an outline, but has a Raga roop that is ornamented with Meend, Andolan and the accurate lagaav of Sur and Kan Swar. Perfect Sur in the notes of this Raga can be achieved by complete focus and Swar Sadhana. Bhairav is a major Raga in the modern and ancient Raga systems.
