Kedaragaula or Kedaragowla (pronounced kedaragaula) is a ragam in Carnatic music (musical scale of South Indian classical music). It is a janya ragam (derived scale) from the 28th melakarta scale Harikambhoji, and is sometimes spelled as Kedaragowla. It is a janya scale, as it does not have all the seven swaras (musical notes) in the ascending scale. It is a combination of the pentatonic scale Madhyamavati and the sampurna raga scale Harikambhoji. It is a morning ragam.

Structure and Lakshana

Kedaragaula is an asymmetric ragam that does not contain gandharam and dhaivatam in the ascending scale. It is an audava-sampurna ragam (or owdava ragam, meaning pentatonic ascending scale). Its aroha?a-avaroha?a structure (ascending and descending scale) is as follows:

aroha?a : S R2 M1 P N2 S avaroha?a : S N2 D2 P M1 G3 R2 S

The notes used in this scale are shadjam, chathusruthi rishabham, shuddha madhyamam, panchamam and kaisiki nishadham in ascending scale, with sadharana dhaivatam and antara gandharam included in descending scale. For the details of the notations and terms, see swaras in Carnatic music.
