Bhaskar the rising
As the debutant album, Bhaskar decides to enrich this album with the old virtues’ of Hindustani Classical music which is supposed to have started with Dhrupad Dhamar and has made a long way to the twenty first century with experimenting this music with new sounds and music from all over the world. In this album, listeners would enjoy a vast range of music starting with Raga Gurjari Todi, where Bhaskar renders Dhrupad style Alaap, Jod and Jhala followed by a composition in Dhamar Tala, then getting into the romantic mood of Raga Charukesi with a small Auchar followed by a Bandish in a complex cycle of 9 beats, Matta Tala and double tempo Teentala, 16 beats rhythmic cycle.
After the classical rendition Bhaskar gets into the world of experimental music. He performs a composition in Raga Jog to a very popular rhythm of the new world known as Drum & Bass.
At the end he takes his listeners on a beautiful voyage of India where Bhaskar performs rich Indian folk melodies showing the diversity and unity of our great and ancient land, INDIA.
