Indian Music - Gulfam Sabri

Last night Mona and I had the privilage of hosting Gulfam Sabri for an intimate concert in our home for a few lucky people. The evening was to celebrate the birthday of my favourite father-in-law Abbas who turned 5 years old ;)

This show was truly fantastic and inspiring and I am posting an mp3 for those who missed it. I'm hoping for the opportunity to do a proper recording with Mr Sabri in the coming days.

So in addition to this great music I am also turning you onto a series of my favourite Classical Indian music tracks starting with Ravi Shankar's live performance at the Concert for Bangladesh in 1971



Bangla Dhun is a light Raga (a predetermined set of notes or 'scale') based on a Bengali Folk tune.
