I am trying to figure out what raga this is - the basic aroh is D is an important rest note but also G

'D, 'NS, Gm, R Gm, DNS'

S'ND, mG, Gm, mGRS'NS, 'D, 'D'NS

It may not actually be a Raga but I found my self playing it and wondered if it is actually a raga that I may have heard somewhere

Are you using m for shuddh or tivra ma?

If the latter it has at least hints of Sohini, one of my recent favorite "pa-less" ragas. But that one uses komal re on descent, no re on ascent.

I am using m as Shuddha Ma - not sure what the convention is

It is used in both aroh and avroh

That's what I use too, although it does vary...mostly I've seen m shuddh M tivra but Rajan Parrikar reverses that practice so I was checking!

I used the "raga wheel" tool at oceanofragas.com to find these eight ragas that match at least the swara set you provided:

AdbhutKalyan
AmbaManohari
BhinnaRageshri
Chakradhar
DevakriyaBilawal
Garvapriya
Hansvinod
Udayravichandrika

Now I have to also say I'm not familiar with a single one of them, either!

if ni is komal this is Gorakh Kalyan, one of my favorite pentatonic ragas, tanpura tuned to sa ma sa sa.
if ni is shuddh this could be Hemant, although there is a tiny sprinkle of pa in Hemant.

Just to be sure, what is the tanpura tuning? Is it Dha like marwa or Ma like Hemant?

I think this may be Malhua Kalyan -- just by chance I happened to watch this and it sounds very much like what I was doing (waaaaaay better of course) but the notes seem to be the right ones

Same tuning as raag Manj Khamaj. Pt. Nikhil Banerjee is the only one i've heard play this. I think he created it?

Does anybody know the aroh and avrohi ? Or basic chalan

I see it mentioned that it is a blend of Malhua Kedar and Yaman (or Shuddha Kalyan)

There are also a few vocal versions out there so I don't think this is a Nikhil Banerjee invention.

It is just one of those that is off the beaten track. There is a famous old recording on sarod by Ustad Bahadur Khan that used to play on All India Radio
