Writings about Music

Voyage of Life

There is no music I know of that better reflects the voyage of life than Raga Basant Mukhari recorded by Ravi Shankar and Swapan Chaudhuri. This is music-making of an order we all may aspire to. And we have Rangasami Parthasarathy of Oriental Records to thank for this priceless gift, too, achieving an extraordinary intimacy with his recordings of Indian musicians, sounding like you are right there with them transcending time and place.
