About The Audio CD

Ustad Ali Akbar Khan has been celebrated as one of the greatest musicians India has seen in our times. He has always stood out as the one with that magical touch which takes music from superlative into the realm of the celestial.

The core of that magic lies in the maestro’s unique and almost unparalleled gift in feeling into and accessing the potential that raga offers. For Ali Akbar Khansaheb the contours of ragas handed down by his formidable guru lineage are not prescriptions. They are mysterious entities that offer the artistic mind a space to immerse oneself in and revel in the alchemy of feeling and form. They are a space to be –lost to the world, sunk in the intoxication of swara, the sensuality of movement and swar ka lagav, the magic of shrutis and the spirit of abandon. His relationship with raga is not unlike the relationship of a person totally surrendered to another in love –a quasi suicidal plunge into the darkness of letting one’s identity and defences go, unbridled by fear, willing to experience the ultimate pain in the thirst for ecstasy.

Ustad Ali Akbar Khansaheb is acknowledged as the most erudite and complete inheritor of the wealth of his guru and his gharana, be it in the realm of repertoire of ragas and compositions, techniques of improvisation in raga and in baaj, or rhythm and tala. However, his own genius dominates the persona of his music.

This album offers to listeners four haunting pieces – Todi, Lajwanti, Bairagi and Durgeshwari.

Alap, Gat Teentaal

2. Raga: Lajwanti [1961]

3. Raga: Bairagi
Alap, Gat Teentaal
Tabla – Pt. Shankar Ghosh
Tanpura – Ustad Dhyanesh Khan, Gopi Mohan Dutta

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!

My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
