  • Last song

    By randomresonance
    The last tune seems to be "Gram Chara ei Ranga Matir Poth" - a Bengali folk song. The name roughly translates to "The Red-earth Path from the Village".
  • Sitar at top

    By Shatatantri
    Nikhil Banerjee is a Sitar exponent who had been famous for his sweet tone sitar and a very talented musician himself. Raga Nat Bhairav is specially very sweet and cant stop listening to it again and again. What a bargain is this album ! The folk tune at the end depicts the eastern Indian influence on this artist's Sitar playing, he being from that region. I was able to relate the tune with many songs from the Indian Hindi Cinema. very nice !

    Very good ragas played by the great maestro. He has both the grace and the speed.
  • Excellent recording

    By stringdude
    This is an excellent piece of Indian classical music with a good mix of sublime and light classical ragas. Nikhil Banerjee's albums are hard to find and it is good to see this on iTunes.
