Kedara is an old raga dating from Guru Nanak's time or even earlier which has become a very important and popular North Indian raga today. It is supposed to possess magical qualities, if correctly performed, which can heal the sick. In the Ragmala, Kedara is a putra (son) of Megha but currently is in the Kalyan thata. Kedara was used by Guru Ram Das ji and Guru Arjun dev ji for a few short hymns. Several forms of Kedara have been and still are in use. Thus considerable freedom of choice may be exercised by the performer as to how this raga be performed in association with a given text. In the most commonly used form, Kedara is performed during the first quarter of the night and is particularly auspicious when the moon is visible, a planet with which it has long been associated. The mood is one of contemplation associated with a sort of ascetic idealism. The sadness expressed in Ragmala paintings suggests the longing of man for the Supreme Being when this raga accompanies a shabad. The Kedara scale is vakra (crooked) with unusual intervals:

Aroh: Sa Ma, Ma Pa, Dha Pa, Ni Dha Sa
Avroh: Sa Ni Dha Pa, M'a Pa Dha Pa Ma, Ma Re Sa
Vadi: Ma
Samvadi Sa
