About the CD

Pandit Jasraj - Vocal
Hariprasad Chaurasia - Flute

So wrote Kalidasa of this most joyful of seasons in his immortal poem, the Ritusumhara, Vasanta, Lord of the Spring, dances in the Garden of Love surrounded by beautiful ladies; and the Raga Basant is depicted as golden - hued and clad in yellow garments, his ears ornamented with mango blossoms.

Yellow is the predominant colour of this season of youth, beauty and flowering gardens. Beginning with Basant Pancham if when prayers are offered to Saraswati, Goddess of Learning, springcelebrations end with Holi, the festival of colors. In the Durgahs of the Sufi saints, Basanti chuddars and flowers were offered and quwwalis sung.

Above all, this is the season of music, dance and poetry, both classical and folk. Hori, Rasia and Dhammal, as also the ragas Basant, Bahar and Hindol, are the best known musical expressions of the romantic lyricism of Spring.

Raga Bhavani Bahar Khayal, Madhyalaya in Jhaptaal
Pandit Jasraj
This is a combination of Raga Durga (Bhavani) and Bahar. It creates an emotion for me a singer that is both awesome and moving.

Raga Adi Basan Khayal from Haveli Sangeet in taal Deepchandi

Pandi Jasraj
Adi Basant literally means an ancient form of Basant. Here both rishabhs and madhyams are used one after another to create a telling effect on the listener.

Raga Shahana Bahar Alap, Madhyalaya and Drut in teentaal
Hariprasad Chaurasia
A combination of the ragas Shahnna and Bahar in a romantic mood.

Pahadi Dhun Hariprasad Chaurasia

Pahadi is not traditionally associated with the season Bahar but for me this was a completely spontaneuous response to the feeling of basant.

The rich panorama of the Indian musical heritage offers resplendent ragas to suit the myriad moods of our seasons.

Music of the seasons is a celebration of the two most emotive and colorful times of the year Basant (Spring) and Malhar (Mansoon). Basant Bahar Captures the brilliant freshness of flowers in full bloom. And megh Malhar echoes the majesty and romance of the rains. Each raga is a personal and inspiring tribute by a galaxy of leading musicians. Brought to you in twin series of four compact discs for each of the two seasons.

Original digital recordings on one hour compact discs. For the ultimate in listening pleasure.

1. Raga Bhavani Bahar - 15:10
2. Raga Adi Basant (Pandit Jasraj Vocal) - 15.30
3. Raga Shahana Bahar - 16:20
4. Pahadi Dhun (Hariprasad Chaurasia) Flute - 14:30

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
Best web site to shop on line.
Suman, USA
Thank you for having such a great website. I have given your site to all the people I get compliments on your merchandise.
Pat, Canada.
Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
Tim Smith, USA
Love this site. I have many rings from here and enjoy all of them
