Bhairavi is one of the ragas most often performed in the classical tradition of Hindustani music. The Bhairavi mode, as well as the Bhairav mode, are not unknown in the West: they are often heard in music influenced by gypsy music: flamenco, arabo-andalusian music. This is because the three important gypsy migrations originated from Rajasthan and that the people of gypsies there, the Lohar Pasa, are devotees of Lord Bhairav. A lot of their songs follow raga Bhairavi or raga Bhairav.
