Darbari Kanada, or simply Darbari, (pronounced darbri knada), is
a raga in theKanada family, which is thought to have originated
in Carnatic music and brought into North Indian music by Miyan
Tansen, the legendary 16th-century composer in emperor Akbar's
court. This tradition is reflected in the name itself; Darbar is
thePersian derived word in Hindi meaning "court." As the most familiar
raga in the Kanada family, it may sometimes also be called Shuddha
Kanada or pure Kanada. It belongs to the Asavari thaat.

It is also sometimes written as Durbari and Durbarikanada.

Darbari is a grave raga, played deep into the night, considered to be
one of the more difficult to master, and with the potential for profound
emotional impact.

The ascension of aroha is in the lower and middle octaves. In
the avroha the note Ga (gandhar) komal is used in a weak manner
and a slow vibrato (andolan) on this note. The association of the notes
Ni and Pa sounds pleasing. Its Vadi swar is Re andSamavadi is Pa.
aroha: S R (R)g, (R)g M P d n S'
avroha: S' d n P M P (M)g, (M)g M (S)R, S
For reference, the set of notes in the Asavari thaat is S R g M P d n,
and for Darbari, the role of the komal gandhar is crucial, as is dwelling
on the lower komal dhaivat for some time.
Other ragas in the Kanada family include Abhogi Kanada, Nayaki
Kanada, Shahana Kanada, Kaushi Kanada and Adana. (see Adana is
part of the Kanada Raga group)
