Album Notes
Proceeds from the sale of this DVD are dedicated to charities bringing clean water to poor communities, especially in India.

The folk melody underlying Zilla-Kafi comes from Uttar Pradesh. It's mood is shringara, loosely translated as devotion. K. Sridhar’s rendition of Zilla-Kafi is subtly nuanced with lovely melodic phrases decorating its development. To the delight of the audience, there is a robust sawal-jawab towards the end that breaks down all formality and brings the raga to a playful conclusion. Just as with all relationships, with each listening, more is revealed.
