The Divine Music...

I m not that great a fan of Indian Classical music,I really don't find any enjoyment in listening to ragas and taalams etc..but I do enjoy good music...infact I love music,whatever is pleasant to my senses I appreciate it earnestly... to be honest I have never made an effort maybe if I had made one I would have been interested. Once I very bravely went to this classical Music festival and people.. this is an honest confession I got a really really bad headache.. .either the vocalist was awful or I was a very bad listener,I suspect the later case to be true.
Anyways my younger brothe, he's deeply into classical music and stuff.He was like me, never taking interest in this segment of music but he went to the same festival and develpoed a keen interest. He is now a regular visitor to many a musical events held in Kolkata.Some days ago he almost goaded me into listening this Album by Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, "Moksha"... ofcourse as usual I was extremely reluctant... but after listening, man was I floored... this is divine music, "Moksha" in English means Salvation, and this music is indeed so. I'll always be grateful to my brother for goading me into listening this fabulous piece of music.It's one of the most beautiful pieces I ever heard in my life. If any of you readers get a chance to listen to this album, please do listen to it... you'll fall in love with it just as I have...
