Kanada (raga group)

Kanada is a group of ragas in Hindustani classical music.

Kanada is derived from Karnata, which suggests that it may have originated in the Carnatic music tradition.[1] According to Kaufmann[2] "Carnatic" refers to a name of a former province in the South between the Eastern Ghats and the Coromandel coast.

Ragas in this group belong to different thaats, but particularly to the Asavari or Kafi thaat.
Komal ga and komal dha are vakra (zigzag) in descent and are used in phrases like gMR and dnP.
