About this album

As an internationally acclaimed flautist, Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia has played a leading role in popularising Indian music throughout the world. This CD has some amazing rhythmic interplay with master percussionists Bhavani Shankar and Anindo Chatterjee on Pakhawaj and tabla. This live performance recorded at Saptak 2001 features music from HariPrasad Chaurasia's semi-classical repertoire. Dhun is a light instrumental music form, which is free from the usual disciplines and structure of classical music. Although the dhun is often based on a specific raga to begin with, the performer is given licence to introduce notes and phrases from other ragas. This particular dhun is based on a traditional Indian folk music theme. It begins with a short alap, which outlines the main phrases of the dhun melody in a free improvised style.
