Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.

Raag Asavari

Asavari is a Hindustani classical raga. This morning raga is the representative of the Asavari That. The overall mood is perceived as either a sad raga or just a serious raga. RagaAsavari shares a very similar scale to Raga Jaunpuri, but Asavari has more simplistic flow and fewer notes in the aroha than Jaunpuri. Generally, most artists use suddha re for this raga. Some older artists, especially rudra vina players, use komal re instead. Thus, this raga is known as Raga Komal Rsabha Asavari.
