This one (and the raga) has special meaning for me. I play the flute (European style, not Bansuri), but one of my favorite annual events is attending an Indian Music Festival near Boston each spring. A friend and former colleague of mine is one of the main organizers of the event, which always includes some very great performers from India as well as a few Americans.
So thanks for sharing this, and the raga.
Eric - delighted to learn that our interests/passions extend from photography to music.
Francois, Christoph, Russ - thanks.
