RAGA NAUT MALHAR( in the key of E )
 
It is a different expression of Raga Malhar and is related to rainy season. It is composed of Raga Naut and Malhar. 
Raga Naut is in the Purbanga or Pre part and Raga Malhar is in the Uttaranga or Post part. (Meanings of  Purbanga or (Pre) and Uttaranga or (Post) given in the Fundamental section). The note compatibility | A F# | and | F# B |
is its backbone. The use of G# in this special note compatibility can also be found. Excessive use of G# may indicate the Thaat to be Bilabol.  In order to have the correct expression of Raga Naut Malhar the following order of anubaadi notes which is derived from authentic or "Nayaki" style documentation of Indian Classical Music to be followed :
B F# G# D# C# . As already stated here that more usage of G# leads to Thaat Bilabol because the Sambaadi note or the Prime Helping note for Bilabol is G# while usage of G# is far low in Naut Malhar.
 
Baadi --> A
Sambaadi --> D#
Formula : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
 
Ascending --> E F# G# A B C# D# E
Descending --> E D# C# B A G# F# E
Pakad : E G# F# G# F# G# A F# A F# A B A G# A F# D# E
