Satyasheel Title Description

Satyasheel Deshpande
Live in Concert

Ninaad Music brings to you yet another powerful selection of renderings from this fascinating artiste, Satyasheel Deshpande.

This album begins with a redolent afternoon raga Multani, following with a piece, which is Satyasheel's own composition, Man Vari Ho Kari Kari set to drut teentaal takes the raga forward with its intricate taan patterns. The third piece Dil Bekarar Hai, a composition of Pt Kumar Gandharva reflects the worry of a mother awaiting her child's return as dusk sets in.

The first, a traditional composition Garaja Ghata Ghana set to madhyalaya jhaptala evokes a living image of the thundering clouds, ominous yet grand. The next composition by Ustad Faiyyaz Khan set to drut ektaal At Dhoom Dham Aayi reinforces the vocalist's strong control over laya. The final piece Papiha Bolan Lagi in drut teentaal brings it to a fitting close with a depiction of exuberance of the monsoons.

The third is a thumri Laga Rahi Sawan Ki Jhari in the pathos-filled raga Pilu. Satyasheel's deep involvement in his performance moved audience to tears. The concluding piece is a Nirgun Bhajan Naiyya Mori Nike Nike Chalan Lagi, a composition of Pt Kumar Gandharva himself.
