Raag Bhairavi
Time: Bhairavi is an evening raga, being the opposite “female” counterpart of the “male” Bhairav raga, which is for the dawn. Traditionally it is played at evening concerts, usually at the beginning or early half of the evening.

Seasonality: Certain ragas have seasonal associations. But in this regard, Bhairavi may also be treated as an all-time raga, as it is not based on the time of the year but the time of the day.

RasaRaag Bhairavi is typically performed with a peaceful, serious, and occasionally sad mood.
