Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.
Raag Yaman (also known as Emaan in West Asia and Kalyan in South India) is a heptatonic Hindustani Classical Raag of Kalyan Thaat.
Aaroh: Sa Re Ga Ma# Pa Dha Ni SA
Avaroh: SA Ni DHa Pa Ma# Ga Re Sa
Raag Yaman emerges from Kalyan Thaat.
Raag Yaman’s Jati is Sampurna-Sampurna, where both Aaroha and Avroha include all the seven swaras. All the swaras in the Raag are Shuddha, the exception being Teevra Madhyam(Ma)
Raag Yaman is traditionally sung during the first quarter of the night (Pratham Prahar).
Yaman is supposed to be one of the most fundamental ragas in Hindustani Classical Music. It is usually one of the first ragas taught to the serious classical music student.
