On a different note than most of my entries here, last weekend I went to an Indian classical music concert by Zakir Hussain and Master Pandit Jasraj and was organized by the Bay Area Performing Arts. The concert was amazing, I have seen Zakir a number of times earlier and as always be was mind blowing. This was the first time though I saw Jasraj and did not know he sang Krishan Bhajans. Though I personally don’t care about the Bhajans but the rags he sang were quite amazing too – especially the ones showing his control over this voice where we went all the way from a very high note to a very flat and dull one (like from a bass). And the special treat were the Jugalbandi’s – one has to attend a Zakir concert just for that – oh what fun! If you find out Zakir is playing in your area I would highly recommend checking it out. If it happens to be the first time you zee Zakir hussain then you are going to be blown away by the whole experience.
This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name? View all posts by Amit Bahree
