  1. Alap
  2. Madhya / Drut Gat in tintal

Tabla: Akram Khan

Playing time: 74'

Recording date: July 1991 (New York)

Sound quality: superlative

This is certainly one of Vilayat Khan's most intellectual presentations, and an interpretation to ponder for some time. The raga itself is not usually attempted by less experienced musicians, and takes some work to truly grasp. Vilayat Khan goes on to give a tour-de-force interpretation which makes no concessions. This is a recording which steadily grows on me.
