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.
