‘’What Indian music refers to as the raga, or ‘’musical mode’’ is a group of sounds corresponding to a specific emotional climate, on the v-basis of which the musician develops a theme, generally in the form of an improvisation and in accordance with certain rules, to form a musical work.’’ (Alain Daniélou) Raga is also a modal mood. Each Raga creates a different emotional climate. Some express, evoke or inspire joy, others sorrow or serenity etc. For example, Raga Shankara is a very popular raga, which traditionally, is meant to be played during the second half of the night. Raga Madhuvanti is an evening raga, performed at dusk, which according to Ram Narayan expresses desire mingled with confidence.
