|Hindustani classical music|
Marva or Marwa (IAST: Mārvā) is one of the ten basic thaats of Hindustani music from the Indian subcontinent. It is also the name of a raga within this thaat.[page needed]
Marva thaat is obtained by adding a komal Rishabh to the Kalyan thaat. The mood of the Marva family of ragas is strongly and easily recognisable.
Other ragas in Marva thaat:
According to O. Thakur Pūrvā Kalyāṇa is Marwa with Pa and less emphasis on komal Re. R. Jha[full citation needed] treats Bhaṭiya as a mixture of Marwa and Maand. There is only one Author (B. Subba Rao) mentioning a raga Māravā Gaurī, thus Moutal does not consider this an own form. Aspects of Marwa are also incorporated in Mali Gaura.
