Album Notes
This double album offers a delectable lush mix of South Indian Carnatic Classical acoustic/electric VEENA sounds - with a colorful fabric of original compositions embracing Indo-Afro-Flamenco grooves that promises to be an exciting eclectic musical presentation. Saraswathi passionately believes in the strength of collaborating across borders – for bringing people together in one platform through the eternal fragrance and perennial freshness of artistic unique music- transcending barriers of race, religion, culture, and color. Through her refreshing musical endeavors, Saraswathi hopes to create a joyous and harmonious space in this cosmos.

This CD is in loving remembrance of the 100th birth anniversary of Saraswathi’s teacher and grandmother Spashta Gana Kalamani Gana Sudhakara stellar Carnatic Vocalist Sulochana Mahadevan, daughter of founding fathers of Shining Star Society, Madras India.

This album is the first official recording featuring original compositions of SURABHI, a world music band led by Saraswathi in a decade-long association with talented flamenco guitarist Carlo Basile.

A warm heartfelt thanks to Grammy Award Winner Slide Guitarist Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt for permission to publish excerpts from a home recording jam session held in Chicago July 2013 – Conversations in Hamsadhvani.
