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.
