Morning Raga - Mohamed Assani Amarjeet Singh

One of the unique characteristics of Indian music is the assignment of definite times of the day and night for performing Ragas (modes/melodies). It is believed that the Raga can only appear at the height of its melodic beauty if played at the right time of day. Since most concerts take place in the evening, audiences rarely have a chance to listen to morning ragas, thus missing out on a huge repertoire of outstanding compositions. Morning Raga – Mohamed Assani  Amarjeet Singh – Raag Gujri Todi Bandish in Teen Taal.
