Octave
In music , an OCTAVE (Latin : octavus: eighth) or PERFECT OCTAVE is the interval between one musical pitch and another with half or double its frequency . It is defined by ANSI as the unit of frequency level when the base of the logarithm is two. The octave relationship is a natural phenomenon that has been referred to as the "basic miracle of music", the use of which is "common in most musical systems". The most important musical scales are typically written using eight notes, and the interval between the first and last notes is an octave. For example, the C major scale is typically written C D E F G A B C, the initial and final Cs being an octave apart. Two notes separated by an octave have the same letter name and are of the same pitch class . Three commonly cited examples of melodies featuring the perfect octave as their opening interval are "Singin\' in the Rain ", "Over the Rainbow ", and " Stranger on the Shore "

Raga
A RAGA ( IAST
IAST
: rāga; also RAAG or RAGAM; literally "coloring, tingeing, dyeing" ) is akin to a melodic mode in Indian classical music . While the raga is a remarkable and central feature of classical Indian music tradition, it has no direct translation to concepts in the classical European music tradition. Each raga is an array of melodic structures with musical motifs, considered in the Indian tradition to have the ability to "color the mind" and affect the emotions of the audience. A raga consists of at least five notes, and each raga provides the musician with a musical framework. The specific notes within a raga can be reordered and improvised by the musician, but a specific raga is either ascending or descending. Each raga has an emotional significance and symbolic associations such as with season, time and mood. The raga is considered a means in Indian musical tradition to evoke certain feelings in an audience
