Flute Recital by
Rakesh Chaurasia’s flute renditions are always soothing and meditative experiences that transport us out of this world. Rakesh ji’s presentation of Raag Lalit is no exception. Sweet, mellifluous morning raga Lalit exudes serenity and positivity as it ushers in the golden rays of the morning sun.
The roots of the unique style Rakesh Chaurasia has instilled and evolved can be attributed to the open-minded approach of his guru, legendary Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, which encouraged him to think beyond the traditional approach while maintaining the purity of the flute lineage he’s blessed with.
This rendition of early morning Raag Lalit from Rakesh ji’s Golden Collection closely retains the spirit of raga while the golden notes in alaap emanate serene, cheerful energy. Enjoy the concert as Rakesh ji presents alaap, jod, jhala, and compositions set to Rupak taal, the rhythmic cycle of seven beats.
The on-stage chemistry Rakesh Ji shares with young tabla maestro Anubrata Chatterjee infuses magic into this exclusive concert. With his dexterity, grace, and unmatched tonal quality, Anubrata has not only taken his father’s legacy forward but also developed his own identity.
In the concert’s second part, Rakesh ji presents another beautiful composition in Raag Desh.
Watch this concert and let the tone, the temper, and the tune from the sound of the flute directly reach our soul.
