Rag Ahir Bhairav



Hariprasad Chaurasia is the undisputed master of the Bansri, the bamboo flute which holds such a special position in Indian culture. Associated with the playful and seductive Lord Krishna of Hindu mythology, in its modern form its beguiling tone still holds audiences in its power. On this disc Chaurasia brilliantly evokes the profound and devotional Rag Ahir Bhairav and completes his programme with a lighter classical piece based on the folk music of his home state, Uttar Pradesh.
