Paul & Abhijit, Sangeet House Concert

Here's a video excerpt from our June 1st Sangeet house concert at Kent's beautiful home in San Gabriel, California. This is a drut gat (fast composition) and improvisation in a lesser heard raga in North Indian music... Raga Vatchaspati, originates from the Karnatic/South Indian classical music. The preceding jhaptal (10 beats) will be posted on YouTube shortly.

The middle section is interesting in the spontaneous use of chords on the sitar, with a unique reflective contemporary accompaniment by Abhijit.

I will release cd quality audio from this concert soon,
including Ragas Marwa & Anandi Kalyan.
