CD Reviews

Exulted music by Shankar.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A full length traditional Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi composition in Raga Kapi set to Seethalakshmi Tala (a 6 3/4 rythmic cycle of beats indited by Shankar and named after his mother!), is a great piece of music to hear. Special word has to be mentioned about Ganam Rao and Shankar who have done the vocals for this album. Once again Shankar reveals the variation and the depth of his voice. Kudos to Zakir and Vikku for the brilliant accompaniment. 'One more gem from Shankar' is what I thought when I heard this music for the first time."
A Frightening Beauty

"When I first heard this I had played it on cassette in my home, and was listening to it while performing some chores around the house. Moments later, I was staring in utter disbelief at the speakers, wondering if my ears had somehow tuned in to some celestial event."

"I did not care for the singing (vocals). To say it was amateurish, would be too kind.

This is nowhere near his masterpiece (Pancha Nadai Pallavi). There is a strong repetition of concepts (with appropriate transposition) from his earlier work."
