About this album

This recording features a live performance given at the 2002 Saptak Music Festival.

It begins with a rendition of the popular evening raga, Malkauns; which is stated in ancient texts, has being one of the six original ragas of Indian music. Deep, peaceful and sublime in character, it is a melody traditionally associated with the late night. Technically, it offers a particularly stiff challenge to violinists because it consists of only five notes, and the gaps between the notes on the neck of the violin are sizeable.
