Filled with romance and beauty, Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan's brand new CD, Evening Romance embodies the essence of love. Accompanied by the very talented Shri Hindole Majumdar, this CD contains 4 warmhearted raags - Gorakh Kalyan, Kafi, Des and Tilak Kamod.
Ustadji's depth of mastery allows him to express a wide range of emotions through his evocative interpretation of these 4 raags. Playfully romantic and at times agonizingly somber, his playing strikes the core of the listener guiding them through love's journey. Ustadji has spent the past six months delicately perfecting each of these raags specifically for this CD. Many SPK Academy students will recognize the signature gats, taans and alankars from having participated in te last few shibirs.
By insisting on recording everything in a single sitting, Ustadji replicates the creative energy and excitement of the concert setting. This way Ustadji ensures that every listener is able to properly experience his music in its natural, live element. The creative energy generated during these sessions provides a certain ineffable spontaneity and opportunity for improvisation that cannot be achieved through conventional start and stop recording techniques.
We at the SPK Academy of Music thoroughly hope you enjoy this CD as much as we enjoyed recording it.
The CD is available for purchase at the SPK Academy Store.
