Despite using so many flat notes, there is no darkness in Malkauns because of the even spacing of its notes. But replace the flat ni (♭7) with Ni (7), and you immediately add an element of tension and darkness to the scale. Chandrakauns is a new raga, created from Malkauns. Similar to Malkauns, it is performed after midnight.
