    Beautiful album, and astounded by the dissonance to calm passage in Jor – Jala

    Agreed. Imrat has been on heavy rotation around my place lately..guy has a very nice touch.

    Marwa is one of my favorite ragas

    I don’t like any of the light ones very much, always the deeply emotional and dark ones like Marwa, Chandrakauns, Malkauns, Darbari, …..

    Do you have any more Imrat Khan surbahar albums? I am a huge fan of Z.M Dagar’s rudra vina and except for Nikhil Banerjee’s talents I feel that the deep, resonant sound of the vina far surpasses the comparatively light sitar

    So I have a soft spot in my heart for surbahars as well since they are as I would prefer sitars to sound

    I would kill to hear Imrat perform Malkauns on surbahar, not sure if he’s done that on record or not

    Here is a Malkauns by Imrat Khansahib on Surbahar “Thou shall not kill”.So please don’t kill for malkauns if you can have it without a kill.
