Raga Gara is a Hindustani classical raga belonging to the Khamaj That.[1] This raga is similar to raga Jaijaiwanti. Both ragas have the same svaras. Gara is a rare raga.[2] It is rendered in the late evening and uses all seven notes, six in the ascent and seven in the descent.[3] It uses both komal (flat) and shuddha (full) Nishad, and all other notes are shuddha (full). The derivative ragas out of this structure are grouped under the broad head of Khamaj Thaat.[4] Gara belongs to a family of melodic entities, which were apparently derived from folk melodies, and entered art-music in association with the thumri genre.[5] This raga expresses the feeling of happiness and satisfaction of achievement, however it simultaneously conveys the sadness of losing.[6] This raga is also a vivacious and romantic one.[7][8]
