Madhyamodīcyavā (मध्यमोदीच्यवा) refers to one of the jātis (melodic class) related to the madhyama-grāma, according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 28. It is therefore also known as madhyamodīcyavājāti. Jāti refers to a recognized melody-type and can be seen as a precursor to rāgas which replaced them.

According to the Nāṭyaśāstra 28.131, “in the madhyamodīcyavā-jāti the aṃśa (key note) is pañcama. The rest of the rules, is similar to those of the gāndhārodīcyavā-jāti”.
