  • good,the best india fusion besides Anoushka Shankar i've ever heard
  • Remembering her is one of his greatest!
  • Beautiful
  • Bokushu (The Master) from his "Zen" album - very haunting as well as catchy.
  • interesting indian music. ^_^
  • "Normally a santoor concert features just one raga, since to play a different raga dozens of strings have to be retuned."... Bring two I say :P
  • Funny, two tracks in the album have really wrong names because it's hard to read them: Walking to Lamayaro Monastery, 50 Lamas in the Gompa - compare yourself: http://i36.tinypic.com/2uz2b7c.jpg
  • Also try "Gulmarg", "Pari Mahal", and "Kehwa" from his album "Kashmir - Sounds of the Valley". They are brilliant. I like his latest album Antariksh as well... He seems to be very good in so many different genre -- Indian Classical, fusion, jazz, electronica, new age...
  • Album: Sweet Romance - Track: "Remembering her" Listen to this number.. Awesome..
  • Definitely a maestro in the making, evolving from one album to another! It is quite an achievement to be well-grounded in Indian classical music and yet be so good in other genre like Fusion, Electronica, Thematic, New Age etc. He has already made a mark as a worthy successor to his legendary father, the pioneer of santoor, maestro Shivkumar Sharma.
