CD Reviews

Vilayat Khan charms the public once again.
09/13/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With an in depth exploration of the Raga Marwa, Vilayat Khan demonstrates his great skill and virtuosity in this live performance in London. The alap is vintage Vilayat with all the note permutations and dynamic intricacies. As usual, Vilayat gives us a taste of his charisma with some talking and singing; basically attesting to the genuiness of his gayaki ang. The gat composition in teental is pleasant but lacks an antara (second line) and does not really do justice to the Vilayat Khan we heard in the fifties and sixties. He is a much older man now (in his seventies), and although he does not have the speed and clarity of those early years, he still succeeds in carrying the listener away on the path of his musical fantasy. Highly recommended."
