Ragas Relax 2

Sarod and guitar duets in the time of Coronavirus lockdown. Spotify Amazon Apple/iTunes

Twelve duets between my Indian stringed instrument sarod and Spanish classical guitar. Each melody is based on a classical Indian raga scale, with chords on the guitar formed only from the same notes used in the raga.
I keep the arrangements sparse, so that there is a balance of sound and silence between the notes. The result is twenty-five strings (nineteen on sarod, six on guitar) vibrating in resonance, creating a mesmerizing harmonic tapestry.

Plus BONUS TRACK (not on the album!) – Listen in full on Soundcloud.
