Light and popular music on Santoor

"This is a free-flowing and spontaneous flow of light music on the Santoor. The arrangement of the tracks is not progressional - there are different colors of sentiments, some brilliant and lofty, some sentimental and soft.
This CD also has a bonus track (which was not part of the original Feelings album released as an LP) featuring a Ragamala in Mishra Kafi. Ragamala (literally, a string of ragas) is a composition based on one main raga (Mishra Kafi in this case) where the performer blends multiple pieces of other ragas, coming back to the original theme after long deviations.
The sound of Santoor is especially brilliant in this.
Overall, this album will be very much appreciated by the younger generation.
