Raga Desh is a very sweet raga as it has a flavour of folk music .The 'aalap' part of it is very impressively presented by genius music composer of Hindi films Late Sri Jaidev  in the song "Aayee  ritu saawan ki..." from the Hindi film: :'AALAAP'.The song is penned by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza and sung by Kumari Faiyyaz and Bhupendra,with full devotion,keeping the depth and grace of the raga alive.The film 'AALAAP'(1977)had Classical Music as its central theme and Jaidev did full justice with the subject.He also created a Raagmalika for that part of the film ,when Amitabh and Rekha learn music from Chhaya Devi (Amma).The song is:

 "आयी ऋतु सावन की,
   पिया मोरा जाये रे।
   आयी ऋतु सावन की ....।।
   बैरन बिजुरी चमकन लागी,
   बदरी ताना मारे रे ।
   ऐसे में कोई जाए पिया,
   तू रूठो क्यों जाए रे।।
   आयी ऋतु सावन की ...।।
   तुम ही अनूक बिदेस जाइयत,
   सब आये हैं दुआर रे ।
   ऐसे में कोई जाए पिया,
   तू रूठो क्यों जाए रे,
   आयी ऋतु सावन की.... ।।"
