Raag Jaunpuri (Asavari thaat)

Raag Jaunpuri is classified under the Asavari scale because it uses the flat variants of ga, dha, and ni (♭3, ♭6, ♭7). This raga from the Jaunpur region of Uttar Pradesh has melancholy undertones and a distinctly feminine quality to it, which requires a light touch. It is sung in the late morning hours, up to noon or so.
