About the Artist

Niladri Kumar, the 'son and disciple of Sitar Maestro Pandit Kartick Kumar, was born in Calcutta in 1973.

Niladri Kumar represents the fifth generation of Sitarists in his family. His renowned father, his great great grandfather Pandit Indramohan Das, great grandfather Pandit Mihirlal Das and grandfather Pandit Mangal Chandra Das were all leading sitarists in Dhaka. Born in such a distinguished family of sitarists, Niladri Kumar showed an exceptional flair for Sitar at a very early age. In fact, he began learning the Sitar from the early age of four years from his father Pandit Kartick Kumar.

A science graduate from the University of Bombay, Niladri Kumar has been awarded several noted awards including the prestigious 'Jadubhatta Puraskar' in 1994 by the government of West Bengal. He has also been awarded the title 'Surmani' by the Sur Shringar Samsad, Bombay & the 'Sur Ratna' title by the Bhatkhande Lalit Shiksha Samiti.

About the CD

Bilaskhani Todi
A morning raga, Raga Bilaskhani Todi is from the 'Todi' Thata. It uses Komal (flat) 'Re', 'Ga', 'Dha' and 'Ni' Swaras. In Aroha (ascending) swaras, 'Ma' & 'Ni' are forbidden. Its Jati is Audav - Sampurna. Its Vaadi Swara (the note most frequently used or emphasised) is 'Dha' and Samvaadi (the second most frequently used note) is 'Ga'.

Aroha : Sa Re Ga Pa Dha Sa
Avroha : Sa Ni Dha Ma Ga Re Ga Re Sa

Mishra Pilu
Raga Mishra Pilu is from the 'Kafi' Thata. Its Jati is Sampurna. Its Vaadi Swara (the note most frequently used or emphasised) is 'Ga' and Samvaadi (the second most frequently used note) is 'Ni'. This raga, performed in the third prahaar of the day, is a highly imaginative and complex raga in which both varieties of 'Ga' & 'Ni' are used.

Aroha : Ni Sa Ga Re Sa, Ga Ma Pa, Dha Ma Pa, Ni Sa
Avroha : Sa Ni Dha Pa, Pa Dha Pa Ga
Ma Dha Pa, Ga Re Sa, Ni Sa

This Raga is from its own 'Bhairavi' Thata. This is one of the most loved ragas in Hindustani music, a huge favourite of audiences and artistes alike, many of whom often conclude their concert with thumri, dadra or any dhun in this raga. This raga uses Komal (flat) 'Re', 'Ga' 'Dha' and 'Ni'. Its Vaadi Swara (the note most frequently used or emphasised) is 'Ma' and Samvaadi (the second most frequently used note) is 'Ga'. The Jati of the raga is 'Sampurna' Jati. Traditionally Bhairavi is a morning raga, but it is an accepted norm that it can be performed any time of the day or night, especially at the conclusion of a concert.

Aroha : Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa
Avroha : Sa Ni Dha Pa, Ma Ga Re Sa

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.
