At what time of day should you perform a raga?
Here is a brief compilation of the times and some raagas corresponding to them. You can find more about each time in the glossary.
The last set, the sarvakaalika raagas, are common raagas and can be performed at any time.
You'll find that compositions are also composed - many lullabies are sung at night and are therefore composed in neelaambari. Other songs are morning songs and composed in bhoopaaLam.
Performers always conclude a concert with madyamaavati. Though it is intended to be a midday raaga, it is said to appease the gods and nullify any inconsistencies in singing raagas at the wrong time.
