My romance with Greece takes a new path here. I wanted to put together some pictures of Nissyros in a slideshow and was desperately looking for a suitable Greek song. But Greek being Greek to me, I could not get the meaning of the songs that I searched through, although they were sweet to my ears. Then I went into my old collection of CDs and came across one called SINGING STRINGS FROM INDIA . In it was this sitar piece by Pt Budhaditya Mukerjee in the raag Des. Though I love all forms of Indian music, including classical Karnatic and Hindustani, I lack even the basic knowledge of ragas and taals. This piece struck me as the ideal choice my impressions of Nissyros. Later I read in a website called the South Asian Women's Forum an article by a musicologist called Rajan P. Parrikar. He describes the raag Des "arising from the soil of the land, is a rAga of prodigious seductive power. "
So, here it is - an experimental union of Mediterranean island beauty with Indian classical music.
