Album Description

Raga Charukeshi is a dream of love - the salt water of the sea rushing into the sweet rain water of the tide pool. In January 1990, during the year I lived in Maui, none other than George Harrison sang the arohana (ascent) and avarohana (descent) of Charukeshi for me during a chance encounter at a Lahaina restaurant. In more recent years, I was deeply touched by Shivkumar Sharma and Anindo Chatterjee’s recording of Charukeshi. This is what inspired me to create a new composition based upon the raga.
