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

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
