Journey is one of Ronu Majumdar’s special albums where he tries to give a folk flavour to the listener. The musical notes from his flute carry the essence of beautiful landscapes of places like Assam, Kashmir, Rajasthan and others. The maestro explores the choicest of ragas under this musical excellence which consists of 7 soulful tracks.
A number of musical instruments are associated with Hindustani classical music. The veena, a string instrument, was traditionally regarded as the most important, but few play it today and it has largely been superseded by its cousins the sitar and the sarod, both of which owe their origin to Persian influences. Other plucked or struck string instruments include the surbahar, sursringar, santoor, and various versions of the slide guitar. Among bowed instruments, the sarangi, esraj and violin are popular. The bansuri, shehnai and harmonium are important wind instruments. In the percussion ensemble, the tabla and the pakhavaj are the most popular. Various other instruments have also been used in varying degrees.
