Raaga Alhaiya Bilaval
Alhaiya Bilaval is a Hindustani classical raga. It is the most commonly performed raga of a large group of ragas that are mainly based on a scale more or less identical to the western major scale. For this reason, that scale itself is known as the Bilaval Thaat. It is often simply referred to as Bilawal, although in the 17th century Alhaiya and Bilawal may have been separate ragas

Raaga Yaman 

Yaman (also known as Emaan in West Asia and 'Kalyani' in Carnatic classical music) is a heptatonic (Sampurna)Hindustani Classical raga of Kalyan Thaat. Yaman emerged from the parent musical style of Kalyan, itself a style of classical Carnatic musical tradition called thaat. Considered to be one of the most fundamental ragas in the Hindustani Classical tradition, it is thus often one of the first ragas taught to students. In the context of traditional standards of performance, Yaman ragas are considered suitable to play at any time of the day, but they are traditionally performed in the evening.

(Taal) Kaherwa
Keharwa or Kaharva is one of the famous talas of Hindustani music. It is also one of the common taals in North India, used in various popular compositions of Indian music. Keherwa has many variations including dhumaali, "bhajani", and qawwali.

Keharwa is an 8-beat pattern used in ragas. It has eight beats in two equal divisions (vibhag). The period between every two beats is equal. The first beat out of 8 beats is called "sam" and the fifth beat out of 8 beats is called "khali". Sam is the Ist Division. Khali is the IInd Division. To exhibit the Keherwa, the audience claps on the first beat and then shows that fifth beat is waived (not clapped).
