The modern name for this raga appears to be "Kanada", probably a matter of transliteration from its original name. Under the Kanara spelling this raga was prevalent in the classifications of 16th and 17th centuries. However, in one instance, Kanara and Kanada both appear in the same ragmala. This would indicate that at one time these were two distinctly different ragas. Kanara was used by Guru Ram Das and Guru Arjan for 69 hymns, a var plus numerous slokas. In the Ragmala, Kanara is a putra of Dipak. The modern Kanada is one of a group of many Kanada ragas which are combinations of Kanada with other ragas; one of the most popular is Darbari-Kanada classified under the Asavari thata. Assigned to the night hours, its mood is quiet and full of majesty. Darbari-Kanada is performed in slow tempo and is a popular concert form today. The details of this raga:
Aroh: ਸ ਰ ਗੁ ਮ ਪ ਨ ਸ Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Ni Sa
Avroh: ਸ ਨੁ ਪ ਮ ਪ ਗੁ ਮ ਰ ਸ Sa Ni Pa Ma Pa Ga Ma Re Sa
Vadi: ਪ Pa
 Samvadi: ਸ  Sa

Darbari Kaanra is:

Aroh:  ਨ ਸ ਰ ਗੁ ਰ ਸ ਰ ਪ ਧੁ ਨੁ ਸ  Ni Sa Re Ga Re Sa Re Pa Dha Ni Sa 
Avroh:  ਸ ਧੁ ਨੁ ਪ ਮ ਗੁ ਗੁ ਮ ਰ ਸ  Sa Dha Ni Pa Ma Ga Ga Ma Re Sa 
Vadi:  ਰ  Re 
Samvadi:  ਪ  Pa
