From the CD:

I wanted to create an album that would be a beautiful, soulful an memorable experience in its entirely in its vocal performance, its lyrics and its music. I hope this album will be one.

The emotional core and theme of the album, as the title ‘Saari Raat’ metaphorically suggests, is the wait, the contemplation, the search and the sweet pain in the real world of love. This is consistent in all the tracks in the alum. The lyrics lend themselves to a sufi interpretation since the search and path to get to the loved one is symbolic of the pursuit and journey to the divine eternal power.

He vocals traverse as necessary to meet the emotional and musical requirements of each track- there is improvisation on combining complementing ragas, experimentation with layers of harmonies, balancing acts between soft, almost spoken tones and bass tones, and a deliberate introduction of a contrast between a Hindustani classical style rendition and a more modern, straight singing style.

The music and sound of the album is more contemporary- simple on the one hand and rich on the other, each track bringing its own distinct mood that stands out and yet blends in to fulfill its place in the overall sound of the album.

I hope that listening to the album is a reflective and enjoyable journey for you.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
