Pandit Jasraj : Variations of Todi

Raga Todi is a morning raga that expresses both heroic and devotional moods. It is also called ‘Miyan ki Todi‘ which is now, the most important raga of the Todi family and sometimes also referred to as ‘Shuddh Todi‘. It is a believed that Miyan Tansen had created this raga. Todi is a plaintive raga, which creates a mood of delighted adoration in a gentle, loving sentiment. When played it creates an aura of a profound & pathos-filled melody.

Apart from the raga Todi or Miyan Ki Todi, there are also other forms of Todi such as, Gurjari Todi, Bilaskhani Todi, Asavari Todi, Desi Todi, Bhoopal Todi & many more. Posted below are four variations of Todi beautifully rendered by none other than Pandit Jasraj.
