The warm winter’s afternoon got me revved up for the evening performance, the knowledge of five generations of sitar players and that lineage proudly played out at the Lyric theatre on the evening of the 30th July 2017.
Not knowing what to expect when I played the CD, only knowing the genre and that this might be a more ‘Classical’ Rock fusion, I was amazed at the precision of singers. The detail which they give the Raags in these 4-5 minutes is an achievement on its own.
Seems like the magic of the days gone by has not left me as yet. Had a listen to the genius of Naushad, Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar coming together in Baiju Bawra on Vinyl. The songs are exemplary!!
