CD Reviews

The genius of Ali Akbar Khan
Aditya Vedula | Princeton, NJ United States | 02/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To those not very familiar with Hindustani Classical music, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan is the Son of the legendary Ustad Allauddin Khan (also the Guru of Ravi Shankar). Raga Chandranandan is his own creation and among his performances of this Raga, this is the most brilliant. This is one of those recordings that I can not tire of repeated listening. This is Hindustani Classical at it's absolute best."
Music for your soul
shadyzane | London, Europe | 02/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I simply cannot recommend this album enough. The Sarod is an eight-stringed short-necked, unfretted, waisted lute carved from a block of teak and covered with a skin belly. The music is an ancient form of north Indian classical music. Khan is the 81 year old master musican who, performing on the Sarod and accompianied by tamboura and tabla, creates soundscapes of beauty.Listening to this CD will calm you and educate you. It will transplant your soul to places located in your distant memory and to places found only in your imagination.Ali Akbar Khan's many awards and achievments throughout his long career are not unfounded. His performance on this CD and others could be described as a mixture of Ornette Coleman, Shostokovich, Bach and Beethoven. The CD contains a lot of groove and melodic beauty. It will also bring into your life a sense of peace that will withstand the overwhelming stress from the geopolitical wrangling of today. What more could you want?"
Beautiful sounds

"Wanting an excellent CD of traditional Indian music, but being a novice, I chose this based on the hope that the title didn't lie. It didn't, this is a wonderful and expressive CD, each song starts slow and simple then builds to an exuberant ending. It is relaxing and playful to the ear and mind."
