Signature Series 3: Rag Darbari Kanada
- Artist: Ali Akbar Khan
- Format: CD
- Release Date:2/16/2010
2010 two CD release. Ali Akbar Khan (1922 - 2009) is one of this generation's most legendary Indian classical musicians. Considered a "National Living Treasure" in India, he was admired by both Eastern and Western musicians for his brilliant compositions and his mastery of the sarode (a beautiful 25-stringed Indian instrument). 'Darbari Kanada' is a late-evening rag played between 9:00 PM and midnight. Most classical performers treat this rag with reverence, as it is one of India's most majestic ragas. This session took place in 1969 in a New York City church, with the natural reverberation adding a tremendous and distinct element, along with audible sounds of the city streets. No attempts were made to alter the original content of the master recordings.
