This CD features two different ragas – Tracks 1-3 are the Raga Adi Basant, and Tracks 4-5 are the Raga Manjh Khamaj. The Raga Adi Basant is a pretty complex work that is apparently quite difficult to play. The Raga Manjh Khamaj is lively and is apparently based on a romantic melody. As for all India Archive releases, you can learn a lot more about the music from the CD liner than from my limited review. Try: 2,3,5.
1. A long alap, jor, jhala combination that is free of the tablas. As per convention, it starts slowly and establishes the structure for the raga, and builds towards the end with some complex sitar flourishes.
2. Tablas are introduced and there are some complex moments here.
3. The dramatic climax of the raga – very sophisticated and complex sitar flourishes build up towards the end.
4. A tabla-free alap that starts slowly and establishes the structure for the raga.
5. Lively improvisations and dramatic sitar flourishes in this one.
