Rakesh Chaurasia is the nephew and disciple of the legendary flautist Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. Adept at playing the popular and folk music, he is equally at home in the Indian classical genre. This very gifted flutist has already made his mark on the international scene with solo and collaborative tracks in various albums.
In this Sacred Mantras of India album, some of the most significant chants and mantras from the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita, prayers for spiritual and meditative stimulation have been presented in a musical form exemplifying various moods.
From the majestic morning raag Bhatiyar to the deeply contemplative late night raag Bhairavi, these mantras explore the full gamut of feeling, emotion, passion, commitment and transcendence that a human being can experience during a day?s cycle.
