Ali Akbar Khan presents LEGACY: 16th - 18th Century Music of India

Legacy: 16th-18th Century Music from India (Indian Classical)

Genre: Classical | Styles: Hindustani Classical Music

For every style of music, there are its rough-and-ready folk practitioners, and then there are its popularizers. Think Linda Ronstadt singing Mexican rancheras, Paul Simon reinterpreting Township jive, or Ry Cooder sidling up to just about any world music tradition he feels like. This phenomenon is not limited to American artists. Two of India's biggest stars, sarod master Ali Akbar Khan and movie "playback" singer Asha Bhosle, join forces on what's the most easily digestible piece of centuries-old music you're liable to find. Based on 16th-century sacred chants rarely performed, the music on LEGACY is impeccably performed and of a bite-sized nature that's easy on Western ears. Bhosle, the grand dame of Indian film music, is not trained in the classical tradition, and her lack of gravitas aids in the user-friendly aspect of LEGACY. Every bit as rigorous and authentic as a hushed field recording, this disc makes a wonderful start to a lifelong infatuation with the majestic tones of India.

My first ever post on this forum. And, quite appropriately I am starting with a devotional piece I came upon only today after a long wait.
Sri Ramanama Sankirtanam is a CD of hymns to the incarnation Shri Rama sung at the Ramakrishna Mission, the oldest 'modern' monastic organization in India established by Swami Vivekananda.
These are hymns in Sanskrit and easy Hindi sung by the monks and novitiates of the order and shall lift your mind to the Higher level.
