About the CD

Shehnai has been an integral part of Indian culture for centuries. Any special occasion with or without auspicious ceremonies begins with the Shehnai. So strong is the association between this instrument and festivities that the very word Shehnai has become synonymous with celebrations and happiness. In fact in several parts of the country even today the temples resonate with the sound of the Shehnai in the early hours of morning. A small wind instrument it looks somewhat similar to Oboe but instead of furnished keys as in Oboe it has seven open holes. The player closes or opens these holes with his fingers as the blows to create the desired melody. Naturally it requires tremendous finger dexterity and great lungpower as well as breath control to be able to play the Shehnai well.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
