"Total Absorption" is Absolute Integration!
A splendid malhar beautifuly rendered by the greatest sitar player of the 20th century. Sri Nikhil Bannerjee's tone is immacultate and his approach to raag is subtle and strong, making this the best single recording of Surdasi Malhar I have ever heard. The vilambit gat includes brilliant svar vistar, lay vistar, and other fine things. The drut gat is cheerful and exciting--Bannerjee gives interesting straight tans and some very impressive and tricky gamak tans as well as excellent tihai. I recommend this album wholeheartedly to anyone who loves classical hindustani music.
