Instrumental gold

Indian classical instrumental is a much sought after genre of music all over the world today. Gone are the days when listeners from Western countries could not make out if the instrument that was being played was sarod or sitar. The only sound that convinced Westerners that the music is really Indian was the constant drone of the tanpura. But thereafter, of course, the sounds of the sitar strings became recognizable everywhere and even got featured in a few Hollywood movies of the 1950s and 1960s. The sound was also noticed by many Rock bands of the West and some experimented with it in their music.

    Thanks for placing Anoushka’s recording here. No.1, I just bought the cd because of the tract listing here, but I have been looking for Raag Yaman Kalyan performed by Ravi, but can’t find one. This will do just fine!!

    Thank you for this site…!
