Bhimpalasi (a.k.a., Bhimpilasi or Bheempalasi) is a rag which is very much associated with a hot Indian afternoon. It has five notes ascending and seven notes descending. There are many film songs in rag Bhimpalasi.
Bhimpalasi is derived from Kafi that. This that is very crowded with numerous similar rags, so it is very important to pay attention to their pakads, otherwise one may inadvertently impinge upon them, and thus spoil the performance.
