About this album

Virah (Separation) and Milan (union) are the two facets of love life. Destiny sometimes brings the lovers together and sometimes keeps them away. Pleasure of union and pangs of separation have been the attraction of music since the ages. A Khayaal in a Hindustani raga commences in a brandish in slow tempo (Vilambit laya) and transforms into a brandish in fast tempo (drut laya). Here in this album the slow brandishes delineate sorrows of separation and the fast brandishes depict happiness of union.

Shivanand Patil's parents Shri Shankargouda Patil and Smt Hirabai Patil initiated him into Hindustani Classical Vocal Music. Later, Pandit Appasaheb Pangerikar, Dr. Basavraj Rajguru, Pandit D.V. Kanebuwa, Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki and Pandit Yashwantbuwa Joshi trained him to be a successful performer. Dr. Gangubai Hangal also has guided him to be on the right musical path. The timbre of Pandit Shivanand Patil's voice is sweet and gentle. He excels in aalapi and layakaaree both. His communicative acumen is plaudable. He is one of the most popular concert artistes of the day.

Raga Bilaskhani Todi is a morning melody. Raga Madhuvanti is sung from the afternoon till evening. Raga Bageshree is associated with the second quarter (Prahar) of night. Raga Chandrakauns embraces midnight. All these ragas project Shringar and Karuna Rasas.
