We dedicate this track to our beloved tau ji.. GURUJI as we used to call him, Pandit Pashupatinath Pathak ‘Vyakul’ (Late) – an honest and compassionate human being and a passionate musician – who introduced us to music, which eventually became LIFE for us. Thanks Guruji 🙂
I composed this one in Feb 2010. The track was being mixed during the late hours of Feb 8 when Guruji transcended his body after a long ailment.
Being with him, all through my musical journey and also during his last few months, has shaped a lot in this “me” of mine today. In fact my mom and dad have a great musical influence because of Guruji which, in turn, has helped me and Arunima in a big manner since childhood. In class 11th I remember.. it was my first experience with recording n mixing when I recorded his voice over a karaoke track in my new music-system that time. Also, my first visit to a recording studio..and then All India Radio studios were with him. Amazing experience that was. From then till now and always – we owe a lot to Guruji. This one is for you my musical master 🙂
The track is based around the notes of raaga Bhairavi – the King of all Raagas. This is our Ambient/Lounge/World-Music rendition of this raaga… and is inspired by a much popular Indian song based on Bhairavi – “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” 🙂
Hope you’ll like it. Best wishes to all !! Thanks for the support always 🙂
