Media NM
Sleeve VG+

Format : LP
Cat N° : ZRG 559
Style : Indian Classical, Hindustani

Presented here is an album of classical music for the stringed instruments Sitar, Surbahar, and Vichitra Vina, skillfully produced by Deben Bhattachariya in the 1980s. The recordings themselves date back even earlier, captured during intimate gatherings known as “mehfils” or within the cozy confines of the musicians’ homes. As you immerse yourself in the melodies, you’ll occasionally encounter the charming backdrop of India, with faint echoes of passing travelers and the spirited calls of vegetable vendors on the streets, perfectly woven into the music to bring forth an authentic atmosphere.
