Raga Information:

Raga Vibhasa is a very diverse raga heard in the early morning hours, slightly before the actual prahar time. In fact, some people classify this raga to be in the first prahar. The stability of this raga seems to be fixed on S and P, as none of the other notes can remain on hold for a long time. Some musical gharanas, or succession, will use a D instead of d. Thus, this raga would be placed in the Marwa That, since the properties fit the flow of a Marwa That raga than a Bhairava That. The audio clip below features both varieties.
