For listeners




Wikipedia
cites my rendition of Nirvana Shatkam (Sextet of Salvation).




ab mori baat is a famous traditional song in the khyal style. tabla baat, organ baat and choral baat are remixes from a live recording of the song; full baat is the song as originally performed.



Some of my old content, including album Nirguni, is now available on my Amie Street page.

Appreciation




The language of raga music is a twin-CD lecture-demonstration which explains the art of khyal. Hear a short excerpt. If you want it, e-mail me.



For learners




santhaa, available here as a set of tracks, is a way to learn raga Yaman and a simple song in that raga.



Station at KIAC and IACmusic.com



Born in a musician family, educated in the gwalior gharana style of khyal (genre of vocal classical music of India). Leading performer in genre. Full bio at http://www.it.iitb.ac.in/~hvs/Veena/bio.html

The instrument in my hand is a tanpura (aka tambura). It is a drone - no melody is played on it. You can read more about it here

Hi Veentai i came up with the idea after listening to your wonderful music. I thought it would be great to do a crossover type of song with an epic grandiose feel to it using a mixture of orchestral,beat,heavy bass,drums and Asian native instruments and drums. And try and create a song very much out of the ordinary

I would love you to hear it and consider it. Message me on http://www.myspace.com/paulgroover and we could discuss this further

After listening to you i made my own version of this music called Neem Tree. I would love you to be involved?

I was an early convert to the music you make BBC2 in the 70,s Sunday or Saturday afternoon?. I know now that you use your own chord progressions based on the tuning of the sitar. Thank you for sharing this wonderful music. Perhaps maybe one day our worlds could be together musically?.

Your music is not funny, it's beautiful. My ex girlfriend is Indian and I heard alot of the music she liked and got into the sound of india. My Free Man Lee Favourites station is a mixture of music & comedy and I feel honoured that you approached me to have your music on the station. I'm an advocate of world music and have a big place in my heart for the music of India. xx
