NRDVD 006 - "Peace, Love and Harmony" - 3 dhuns of a lighter vein.

Ravi ShankarRavi Shankar

The first DVD "Between two worlds", is a documentary on his life with some ince archives.

The second is called "Live in Concert" - from a performance at Union Chapel, London, 2002. He plays 2 rags: Anand Kalyan and Rangeela Piloo. Unfortunately, he is not at his best and he plays in duet with his daughter Anoushka Shankar. No comment.

There is also a short introduction on Indian Music and sitar.

Shahid ParvezAn excellent DVD of Shahid Parvez on sitar, accompanied by Anindo Chatterjee. Recorded live in Melbourne, 2002.

He plays a 90' Bageshree (Alap, Vilambit Teental, Madhya Laya Ektal, Drut Teental). As everyone knows, Shahid's technique is flawless and listening to Anindoji is always a treat.

DVD Image is of good quality and mastering as been well done. One drawback : it's a pity that the image of Misra Bhairavi Dadra has been cut off for writing credits. The dhun is superb, in Rais Khansaheb's vein.
It may be ordered on the web.

Vishwa Mohan BhattIn this DVD "The best of the cord", Vishwa Mohan Bhatt - probably the best indian guitarist - plays his "Mohan Veena" - a derived form of Hawaiian guitar, in a live performance, at Jaipur, Birla Auditorium on May 12, 1996.

He develops rags Gavati, Desh, Pahadi and Bhairavi.
This DVD is published in US by Super Digital and may be ordered from their site.

Amjad Ali KhanAmjad Ali Khan, "Rag of the Kings", recorded live at the Sarod Festival, New-delhi, december 26th, 1988.

He is accompanied on tabla by Shafaat Ahmad Khan and plays Darbari and Adana. I

ncluded is also an interesting documentary "I sing through my sarod".

This DVD has been published by Navras Records under the reference NRDVD 002 and can be ordered on their site or, among others, on Khazana's site.

I personally regret that the images of Khansaheb's filmed performance has been marred by intermittently showing what looks like a photo album. It is really frustrating not to be able to watch the entire performance ... I just hope they didn't do that for aesthetics (!) but because the original footage was damaged ... A mail to the publishers remained unanswered ...

Vilayat KhanA superb duet of late Vilayat Khan and his son Shujaat Khan playing surbahar, with Sabir Khan on tabla.
Recorded from a live performance at the Royal Festival Hall, London, 25th november 1993.

This DVD, named "Bequest" is published by Navras - NRDVD 010.

Rag Shahana : Alap (with a few minutes of Khansaheb's singing), jod (with fabulous surbahar gamaks by Shujaat Khan), vilambit teental.
Rag Bageshree : drut teental.

While it is always a treat - a blessing - to hear and see Khansaheb, the surbahar technique of Shujaat is truly astounding. He has got a fabulous control over the instrument and just plays it as if it were a mere sitar, like a toy in his hands.

Vilayat KhanA superb DVD of Vilayat Khan "Different Strokes" Live in concert at the Royal Festival Hall, London, 1993 in which Khansaheb's plays Hamir accompanied by Sabir Khan on tabla.

This jewel is published by the London based famous Navras Records under the reference NRDVD 001. You may order it through their site or from Khazana.

A must.
