Imaginitive and playful light classical Hundusthani bansuri

"Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia's bansuri playing is always worth the cost of a recording. I love his emotive technique, and can only speak praise of him. Four Dhuns is an interesting album for the western listener, because indian art music typically expounds upon a select set of notes throughout a rendition of a raag. Dhuns, however, are a lighter (in spirit) type of classical tune, and they generally are played usuing more melodic variety than the raag form. This allows a musician to leave conventional note choices behind and give an strong effect to the mood of the song by seeming to change chordal harmony, in relation to the drone instrument.If you have ever found indian art music a little dry for your tastes, this is a good album for you."
