Raag Dhanasari

Raag Dhanasari

Raag Dhanasari is 10th  Raag to appear in the raag wise collection of Shabads in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The compositions in this raga appear on a total of 36 pages from page numbers 660 to 696 . The performance time for this raag is said to be early afternoon time from 12 pm to 3 pm.
Thaat: Kafi, Jatti: Aurav Sampooran. In aroh Rishab & Dhaivat are absent. In avroh all the swars are present. Gandahar & Nishad are komal. The similarity between Dhanasari and Bhimplasi is amazing. They share the same thaat Kafi, they share the same jatti Aurav Sampooran and they share the same gayan time. The only difference is the vaddi swar. In Dhanasari the king of the raag is Pancham and in Bhimplasi the king of the raag is Madhayam.
