You can spend an evening or two listening to Dayro, Rajkot's very own music genre. It is the local music genre of Rajkot and is used to convey the folk stories and sayings of the past with the help of music. One can listen to Dayro very often in the social and cultural events in the temples and family gatherings in Rajkot. It has influences of Kathiyawadi folk music and even a bit of Bollywood recently, as more and more people are adapting this folk style and evolving it with their very own personal take in music. It is often accompanied with dance performances with locals dressed in their colorful best and signifies happiness and prosperity on any auspicious occasion.

Dayro off late has been used a lot as an important element to familiarise the local youth with the rich ancient history and culture of the place in a very entertaining way. It is largely organised in the form of a music festival especially in temples during the night and goes on till the wee hours in the morning and has turned into a big cultural symbol and event in itself.
