Yaman emerges from Kalyan Thaat.


Yaman's Jati is a Shadav-Sampurna, where Aaroha omits Pancham (Pa) and Avroha includes all the seven swaras. All the swaras in the raga are Shuddha, the exception being Teevra Madhyam(Ma)

Samay (time)

Yaman is traditionally sung during the first quarter of the night.

In context

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.
