Program #CULT022. Recorded in New Delhi, India on January 01, 2004.
What happens when a father and son, both sitar masters, collaborate in a jugalbandi, a duet? A powerhouse performance of Malkauns, the classic late night raga. Malkauns is an aadi raga, one of the original five ragas from which all other ragas derive. Its pentatonic scale make it particularly challenging for sitarists. The more than 50-minute recording of Malkauns is followed by the popular Raga Pilu played in a light classical style. In this recording maestro Debu Chaudhuri is joined by his son Prateek. Considered to be one of the finest sitarists of his generation, he studied with his father for many years. Maestro Prateek performs all over India. He is a professor of music at Delhi University. They are accompanied by the great tabla master Shafaat Ahmed Khan.
