"This artist on this CD is not to be confused with Ali Akbar Khan. Somehow I confused it and ordered the CD. Although Akbar Khan has adequated knowledge of ragas, he does not seem to be able to capture the depth of ragas like Todi and Darbari. I cannot call his playing traditional if what we mean by traditional is something based on a classical understanding of melodic form."

"-Wow, what a terrific CD. the music is hauntingly beautiful and will weave an exotic spell over the listener. Very traditional music, the relaxing and peaceful kind you would hear at a good Indian restaurant. Perfect background or relaxation music. I love this Cd and play it quite often to wash away the days stresses and escape to an exotic, beautiful place."
Best sitar i ever heard

"I'm no newcomer to eastern music. The sitar playing on this recording is the best I've heard. It really blew my mind. Spastic best describes it. I truly don't believe this is just for beginners. Shankar doesn't even compare and Ali Akbar Khan is a different style. The tabla, although suitable and adaquate, was modest understandably so due to the level of and the style of the sitar playing. Thats why I gave 4 stars instead of the full 5."
