The Sangeet Sartaj collection plays tribute to India’s most celebrated classical musicians and this one is dedicated to Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. Here, he renders Raga Malkauns — alap gat in rupaktala and teentala – in his masterful manner. Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia is one of those rare artistes who appeals to both the connoisseur of Hindustani classical music and the amateur listener. An internationally acclaimed flautist, he is responsible for popularizing Indian Classical Music all over the world. With his consummate artistry he is acknowledged as the greatest living master of the North Indian Bamboo Flute. Unlike many other great Indian artistes, Pandit Chaurasia does not come from a family of musicians. In fact, he forged his own path in the demanding world of classical music, training under Pandit Bholanath in the holy city of Varanasi.
