This musical mode is performed at early morning, suggested by the sunrise at the horizon.
The mood of this scene is joyous, as the blue-skinned god Krishna sits with his beloved in a high covered balcony. Below, exuberant musicians blow horns and clap time. One man in front plays the cymbals next to the open-mouthed singer on a lute-like instrument. A guard sits relaxed and unworried, counting the beads of his rosary.
