Kalavati or Kalawati is a modern pentatonic Hindustani classical raga. Svaras Re (the second tone) and Ma (the fourth tone) are strictly omitted (Varjya/Varjit). Kalavati belongs to the Khamaj Thaat.
S G P D n S'
In the Western scale, assuming S == C, this would roughly translate to: C E G A B♭ c
S' n D P G S
Kalavati uses (komal) ni as a Vakra Svara in Aroha.
P D n D S'
The Vadi is Pa, while the Samvadi is Sa
Komal Ni is weak in Aroha and often dropped: G P D n D S' or S G P D S', but in Tanas G P D n S' is also taken.
Komal Ni is also Andolita G P D n~ D P
It's also used as G P D n – S' D G P D S n – D P
Kalavati is derived from a Carnatic raga (see also Yagapriya). According to J.D. Patki the raga was popularized in Maharashtra by Pandit Rao Nagarkar, Roshan Ara Begum and Gangubai Hangal. B.Subba Rao explains the Carnatic Kalavati as omitting Ga and Ni in aroha and Ni in Avaroha, using komal Re. That would make it closer to raga Jansamohini.
In Carnatic music, Kalavati is approximated as Valachi or Valaji, and is considered to be S G P D n S/S n D P G S, and a janya of the 28th Melakartha, Harikambhoji.
