From the CD

Indian Music is basically spiritual in nature. An artiste manifests his/her genius through a musical entity called raga. A raga is a matrix of musical notes with immense growth potential. An Indian Classical Musician elaborates a raga with constant improvisation. Indian Music is not pre-written. Every artiste can present the same raga in a different way.

Raga with inexhaustible possibilities inside them stand the test of eternity. Eternal Ragas, since the time immemorial have been inviting the artistes to explore into their unfathomable depth and unfold their secrets.

The Indian Instrumentalists have a dual opening on the world platform; on the one hand their instruments can speak a more universal Language of pure music and on the other hand they can present the gaayakee anga (mimic of singing) too on their instruments. A bouquet of the best performances of Eternal Ragas by the legendary Indian Instrumentalists have been presented over here. It is a compilation of prime-time recordings of the all-Time Great Indian Classical Instrumentalists who have been the Cultural Ambassadors of India over the years. All of them have an international recognition. They have expressed themselves through Wind instruments like Shehnai and Flute, Stringed instruments like Sitar, Sarod and Santoor and a Percussion instrument like Tabla. This album of the Best Indian Classical Instrumentalists and their Best Music is being released at the World Economic Forum in New York.
