Ananda bhairavi

Brief description: 

It is an old raga that is more popular in Indian folk music. It is said to be a raga that brings happiness to the listeners (anandam meaning happiness in Sanskrit). Although it is considered the janya raga of Natabhairavi (20th melakartha), some suggest that it could also belong to the 22nd melakartha raga Kharaharapriya. It is a sampoorna raga but it is not a melakarta raga, as it has vakra prayogam (zig-zag notes in scale) and uses an anya swaram , the anya swaram being chatushruthi daivatham.
