Ragopedia™ Volume One
Exotic Scales of North India

by Pandit Shiv Dayal Batish amd Ashwin Batish

Ragopedia™ Cover Illustration

Now lets start our journey into the introductory theory chapters as given in the Ragopedia™ manual. We hope they help you demystify some of the Indian music jargon. We are also looking for ways to easily present the music notes with staff notation on the Internet. Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated. For the time being the notes follow the Indian sargam notation standards. That is Sa (C), Re (D), Ga (E), Ma (F), Pa (G), Dha (A), Ni (B), Sa(u) (Upper octave C). The Ragopedia® book features both sargam (Indian solfegio) and staff notations.


Welcome to Ragas-on-line! A new way to learn music of India. Click on your favorite raga and view its chalan notated in North Indian Sargam and Western Staff. Click on the different segments and hear the music over midi! (Note: a midi compatible sound card like the sound blaster is required) Find your favorite raga and download its chalan online! Over 650 raga chalans listed alphabetically.

This collection is derived from the Ragopedia, volume 1 - Exotic scales of North India, by Pandit Shiv Dayal Batish and Shri Ashwin Batish.
