Program #CULT021. Recorded in New Delhi, India on January 01, 2004.
This recording features a majestic rendering of the late night raga Kaunsi Kanhra. A combination of Darbari and Malkauns raga, Sitar maestro Chaudhuri has a particular affinity for this raga and his performance is marked with great sensitivity. The meditative alaap, opening of the raga, almost 30 minutes, is followed by two compositions in teental, a 16-beat time cycle. The recital concludes with a dhun, a light classical style, based on Mahatma Gandhi's favorite, bhajan, Hindu devotional song. Maestro Chaudhuri is accompanied by tabla master Shafaat Ahmed Khan, a brilliant exponent of the Delhi gharana, school of tabla playing. He passed away in 2005.
