Summer Morning gets
its opening melodic figure from my previous composition, Ganamurti. One of the phrases from that piece sparked an idea for an entirely new composition. After working with the phrase, which centers on panchama, I decided to turn
panchama into shadja, resulting in a new raga, which I have been unable to find
any previous record of.
