Probably not quite what you are looking for, but the power and effect of raags is only half the equation, the raag in it self only has a worldly effect, it is bani that has the spiritual and more important effect.

However, Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana's relationship was 2 fold, to conquer mans mind and soul...

The power of raag and associated Gur-bani is that it brings equilabrium to ones jeevan. If one is yearning or experiencing sadness, then doing kirtan in of maajh shabd will unlock ones, focus and release ones emotions to the Lord. This is a complex subject, and one that is being researched. Listening to too much of one raag in my opnion can also be bad, it's always best to have a healthy balance.

There is definately healing power in raag kirtan if one understands the raag and more importantly related the bani....

Here are the moods of raag and the associated ang in Gur-bani in which they are contained:

If you had the information of all raags, you would have said 60 raags instead of 31 raags.

31 Ragas mate with 6 additional that were added by gurus and are mixed in in with the 31. These ae Asawari, kafi, hindol, lalit, bhopai and vibas

No idea where you get 60 from. ….Not in gurbani; there isn't
