If you mean being able to recognize whether what is being played is Bhairavi, I suggest simply listening to a bunch of recordings. Among other things, this will enable you to differentiate between Bhairavi and the related ragas Bilaskhani Todi and Komal Rishabh Asavari, which use the same (all-komal) notes but are nevertheless quite different. You're unlikely to find Bhairavi khyals, and Bhairavi seems rare in dhrupad as well, but there are several instrumental performances. Here are a couple of good examples.

Here's one courtesy of siddhant by Ajoy Chakrabarty at DLMC 2011

I'm not sure he didn't also sing Bhairavi in 2012, I didn't hear that, but I did find the 2011 performance interesting.

On the subject of unusual ragas for long khyal, AC also sang a Kafi this year at Saptak

Dinkar Kaikini sings a dadra followed by a drut khayal in Bhairavi - http://musicindiaonline.com/album/24-Classical_Hindustani_Vocal/4636-Live_In_Concert/ - Tracks 4 and 5.

Rasoolan Bai brandishes a Dadra:


Kesarbai Kerkar inquires wistfully of aliens, 'Jaat Kahan Ho...', as they flee the approaching Voyager, tails between legs -


Faiyaz Khan -


So much for feeding the troll.

I know AC sang a full khyal in Khamaj, because my teacher mocked him for it I didn't know about Bhairavi and Kafi (*Kafi Kanada*, on the other hand, works well for vilambit khyals). Thanks for the link; I'll listen to it sometime.

No wonder the NASA linguists recommended this piece, even though its melodic beauty and significance to HCM probably went flying above their heads. One of the most novel and beautiful Bhairavis out there, I think.

Another striking Bhairavi dadra by the evergreen Jagdish Prasad -


Panditji passed away last year in sad circumstances, thanks largely to the power games and politics of Ajoy C and co., who don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath.

Wonderful! Can I trouble you for the whole text of this bandish? I can't make out the words.
