GL,
Out of curiosity I heard it and am attempting an analysis. It seems a cross between Tilang and Khamaj of Hindustani scales, given its prominent Dha during descent particularly.
Take care.

Well, I don't know too much about Rageshwari, but thanks, yes the song is delightful.
I don't really think we have singers of such calibre today, who could convey so much in their voice.

GBL,
I'm not that good at guessing rAgams--but in the upper notes, it does sound like rAgESri to me...
