Beautiful music

Years ago, I hadn't heard Indian classical music. I used to be just happy with a few film songs. One fine day, out of curiosity, I picked up an album by Ravi Shankar. It had just two ragas -- one was Desi (featured in this album) and the other was "Yaman Manj". Raga Desi, being an immensely sublime raga, stirred me so deeply that I was fully drawn into Indian classical, especially instrumental. Since then, I have collected thousands of albums featuring Indian classical music -- North Indian, South Indian, vocal, and instrumental... If I were to choose just three of the musicians among the hundreds I have listened to, I would pick: Ravi Shankar, Shivkumar Sharma, and Hariprasad Chaurasia. About this album: Since I would buy just any album that had "Desi" in it, I bought this a long time ago. Over the years, I have learnt a little about ragas and I am aware that Desi is a very difficult raga and it is reserved for the maestros. Hariprasad Chaurasia, being an absolute master of his art, treats the raga very well with a long sequence of unfoldment called "Alap" and "Jod" which sets the serene mood of the raga. It is followed by a nice composition in the 10 beat cycle of Jhap taal. The other two compositions -- Shuddh Sarang and Folk Tune -- are also very nice to hear. If you want to experience the power of music, try this album!

Amazing tonal quality

The tonal quality of Hariprasad's flute is simply amazing, unparalelled. This album is a treasure for the lovers of soothing music. The first raga (tracks 1 to 4) is especially suited for healing / yoga / massage etc. Highly recommended.

Very relaxing

Soft sounds of the flute are so nice to listen to. Make sure you try this ultimately relaxing album.
