Firodust

Here’s a little tribute to my favorite recordings of the magnificent, incomparable, Ragi Samund Singh Ji.

My little recording is a mish-mash of Raag Bin Shadja with obvious hints of Rag Hameer (but avoiding MA tivar). Some subtle hints of Raga Bilawal also showed up.

Aside from in old school Kirtan, Taal Firodust – 14 beats – is not commonly heard in Indian Classical music anymore. It was challenging to get the hang of, but was very rewarding once I was able to.

Make sure you’ve got good headphones on.

Sanu Ik Pal Chain Na Aavey

Sanu Ik Pal Chain Na Aavey – Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Tere Bin Nai Lagda Dil Mera Dolna – Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Tu Maane Ya Na Maane Dildara, Assa Te Tenu Rab Maniya – Wadali Brothers

Inspired by the above 3 tracks, and played according to my limitations.

Included some improvisations – couldn’t copy U.NFAK’s alaaps .. not even close! Going to keep trying.

Sanu Ik Pal Chain has been stuck in my head for a week or so. Decided to play it , then decided to record it , and the other two also sort of flowed in.

It’s pretty relaxing – maybe because I was pretty relaxed when I recorded it.

Esraj Instrumental – Album 1 , 2008

Instrumental .mp3 recordings of my Ustad, Maiya Singh ji, on Esraj. Plus some background experimentation by me.

The tracks have not been given any fancy made-up names. The names you see below are the names of the Raags (Ragas) used.

The suffixes 7bt , 11bt, 10bt indicate the number of beats in the rhythm cycle used.

If you’re new to Indian classical music – this album should give you a basic sense of the variety, complexity, spontaneity, and spirituality present. Maiya Singh ji’s playing style is particularly expressive.

I think all the tracks are also great for when you want to focus, relax, or sleep.

My personal favorites are Raag Megh -10 beat & Raag Alhaiya Bilawal – 10 beat.
