From the CD

Music and Nature are a recurring theme in the ragas of the Hindustani or North Indian system of music. Just as ragas follow a time cycle, their swaras reflecting the changing luminosities of day and night, so too there are ragas evocative of the seasons: two in particular, spring and the monsoons, both of which strike deep emotive chords within us.

In this album, shehnai maestro Bismillah Khan renders music of these seasons. Side A features Hamir Bhar, a combination of two ragas with prominence given to the latter, Bahar, while Hamir adds an element of virtuosity. A night raga of the Kalyan family, this beautiful blend evokes the mood of spring. On Side B, the Mishra Mel Ki Malhar is a free improvisation, allowing for independent interpretation and exploration. Strands of different ragas have been woven into his composition to form a rich and tuneful tapestry. Kajri, a folk form of the rainy season, has found its way into the light classical repertoire, though in a more sophisticated manner. In this rendition, so typical of Benaras, Bismillah Khan retains the essentially rustic feel of the Kajri, while stylizing his presentation in the classical mould.

1. Raga Hamir Bahar (29:45)
2. Mishra Mel Ki Malhar (14:48)
3. Kajri (14:57)

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
