Organization and relationships

Related ragas: Maru Bihag, Bihagra.

Bihag is usually assigned to That Bilaval, but when more importance is attached to Teevra Madhyam, Bihag seems more like Kalyan to Thaat.

Samay (time)

Bihag is played in the second quarter of the night. The mood of the raga is both solemn and romantic, which makes it a common raga that is sung especially on marriage occasions.

Origins

The origin can be traced back to pure classical ragas, which were widespread in the 16th century and in many folk songs of the Vaishnava period (14th-18th centuries). It is used in many of Tagore's songs and in various Bengali and North Indian compositions.
