Tracks 1 and 2 are Mien Ki Malhar. Tracks 3 and 4 are Megh Malhar.

Thank you povster! I have never heard raga Malhar before. I've heard a little of Megh. I really like Jyoti's jawari. Also, I notice she doesn't use the single drone string on the outside of the dandi. She appears to remove it for a six string Rudra Veena. I understand its use is limited.(something about using the fretting hand's pinky to sound it during a meend?) Also, is she using a more 'full-hand' technique on her fretting hand than is typical?
