Attempted play of Raag Bhairavi in Jhaptaal.
The tune was inspired by the Bandish for the Shabad “Koun Ko Kalank Rehyo Ram Naam Layt Hee” sung by Ustad Bhai Baljeet Singh and Gurmeet Singh Namdhari. I just fit it to a really relaxed 10 matra cycle at 60 bpm.
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.
