BUDDHADEV DAS GUPTA

Raga Jhinjhoti

(India Archive Music) Used CD $8.00

Pure energy from beginning to end by this legendary sarodist, with Samar Saha on tabla, performing Alap Jor and Jhala, and Vilambit and Drut Gasts in tintal. Complex and fascinating layakari (polyrhythmic improvisation), made all the more mind-blowing by their intricacy and the mathematical virtuosity of Gupta’s machine-gun bursts of notes. From 1991
