The Mood of Sunrise in Melody

In Indian music, six musical tunes and 36 sub-tunes are recognized as Raga. Among those, Vairaba Raga is one of the notable melodic tunes that indicates the moment of sunrise. It's a beautiful creation of Indian ancestors, which creates an atmosphere of sunrise with a single music or a vocal tune. This musical form can refresh the soul and produce an energetic vibe during the performance. I encountered this melodious tune several times, and it mesmerized me. Five other tunes also represent several seasons and times of the day. The painting pursued the mood of the morning by featuring the Raga Vairaba.
