Album Notes
This music combines the beauty of Indian ragas with the health benefits of music, for the heart and circulatory system.

A versatile improviser on the violin, Michael Braudy collaborates with veena player and medical doctor P. Bharathi, a pioneer of music for therapy in India.

On track 1, is an improvisation on an evening raga called Todi, with the rasa or mood of devotion and sympathy. The combination of lowered notes emphasized is intended to produce a soothing effect on the emotions, and the cascading downward flow of notes chosen may benefit the circulatory system by regulating blood pressure.

On track 2, Rag Shubhapantuvarali, a raga of devotion, also acts on the heart. The rhythm of the recording approximately matches that of the human heartbeat.

On track 3, Rag Pilu evokes sympathy and devotion, and, like the second track, emphasizes the emotion of love.

"This music is pure joy to the heart. I have not heard anything like it before." -- Barbara Newborn, yoga practitioner and teacher
