Gandharvas

Celestial beings of the Vedas and Purānas popularly associated with music. But this is only one of the many functions of the gandharvas. They are also said to be in charge of the preparation of the SOMA juice for the gods.

The Vedas also speak of Gandharva in the singular as a solar deity who knew and revealed the secrets of heaven.
