The king of ragas, Darbari or Darbari Kanada is a serious raga and difficult to master. The meend (glissando) has to portray the crying of a king and it’s movement is very strict. It was composed in the 16th century by legendary musician Miyan Tansen who was a court musicians for the Moghul emperor Akbar The Great.
