Liner notes

The liquid and expressive sound of the vichitra veena lends itself wonderfully to Indian classical music’s general aim of making an instrument emulate the human voice. Dr Gopal Shankar Misra (1957-1999) was recognised as a leading exponent of this ancient and rare instrument. This album is a unique and beautiful testament to his lifetime of work.
