In this video Ustad Amjad Ali Khan continues to sing through his sarod, this time mesmerizingly in Raag Yaman. Look out for the brilliant potrayal of the 'Karun Ras' - the feeling of sadness and melancholy in this piece (in this particular song, its the feeling a lover feels without her 'piya' or beloved).
As Pt. Ravi Shankar has aptly put it, 'The performing arts in India - music, dance,drama, and poetry - are based on the concept of Nava Rasa , or the "nine sentiments" ', this piece proves to be a case in the point. This short masterpiece illustrates how the seven 'swar's can be used to portray any human emotion comprehensively and that a Raag is not just a mere set of notes but is an instrument, which when in able hands can paint any picture on the canvas of human mind.
