Dhwani is a TV series based on Hindustani raags - each episode takes one (or a few) raags, and uses popular as well as classical music to bring it to life. It is edutainment - each episode educates about a few specific aspects of the Hindustani classical tradition.

This episode looks at Raag Yaman, a bright and auspicious evening raag. It also talks about the seven basic (shuddha) notes of Hindustani music (Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa'), the one tivra (relatively shart) note (tivra Ma / augmented fourth) and how film songs, while based on a raag, often don't showcase the raag in its pure form. It is a 7-minute edit of the episode - originally intended as a marketing screener. It has English subtitles.
