Hariprasad Chaurasia

The classical music of North India, known as Hindustani music is based upon a system of rāgas, melodic structures  built around modes, motifs and various extra-musical considerations such as time of performance — time of day or season of the year.

As monsoon rains sweep across India it is the traditional time to perform the rāga known as Miyan MalharThe great master of the North Indian bamboo flute, or bansuri is Pandit Hariprasad ChaurasiaA full feature/interview with Hariprasad will appear soon at Flute Journal. Meanwhile, here is his performance of  Rāga Miyan Malhar. (Move cursor to beginning if necessary.)
