Album Notes
This album is an attempt to capture a refreshingly vibrant smooth play of the Veena in conversation with the enthralling Mridangam in the hands of two highly talented artists pursuing the ultimate goal of ethereal bliss that music can shower. From the quiet confines of a Chicago recording studio, the timeless traditional pristine South Indian instruments Veena and Mridangam in such a tete-a-tete, emanate an elegant grandeur that is at once sparkling, deep, energetic and uplifting.

If you have always been looking for a Veena recital that resembles vocal music, yet delightfully brings out the beauty of the instrument - you have come to the right place! Perfect for listening to any time of the day. Great for special occasions. Stressed out? Listen to the soothing Endaro Mahanubhavulu. Want something peppy? download Raghuvamsha Sudha. Are you a fan of Purandara Dasa krithis? then listen to Rama Mantrava Japiso intricately embellished in Jonpuri raaga. For all you Mridangam fans, Patri Satish Kumar has enticingly accompanied the Veena - giving the music an added joyful pulsing energy.
Don't forget to check out the Laya Madhuryam in Rupaka talam which is a solo by Patri Satish Kumar - must listen to anyone interested in learning Patri-style solo (Mridangam) drums!

If you are looking to unwind at the end of the day - relaxing on your couch or squatting on the yoga mat or doing meditation - or simply introspecting, then consider listening to Saveri Alapana - a pure improvisation piece on the Veena by Saraswathi. You know, sometimes, cooking your favorite dish becomes more pleasurable than less of a chore when you have this music running in the background.

so, if you are cooking, exercising, unwinding, de-stressing, learning, meditating, simply relaxing or exploring another genre of world music, or want to listen to Indian classical instrumental music on Veena, this is a really really good buy - definitely no post-purchase remorse here - you are sure to enjoy this instrumental journey!

Best of Veena
After listening to this CD, I do not feel like listening to any other version of Veena. There is something about the sound of this music that is different. The improvisations are well-played. Some popular tunes like Raghuvamsha Sudha are included. I enjoyed listening to the Thillana the most.
