What exactly is a raga?

A raga is a melodic framework in Indian classical music, designed to evoke specific emotions and moods. Each raga is a unique blend of notes, rhythms, and patterns that transport listeners to a realm of serenity, joy, or contemplation. It’s a musical journey that aligns with the natural rhythms of the day and the season, making it the perfect way to celebrate the harmony of the Summer Solstice.
