Critical analysis

The Sitar

Coming shortly

The Tabla

Detailed analysis is coming shortly.


Dilip Mukherjee [DM] in this CD provided tabla support in six different taalas in different layas. Some of the sitar compositions were offbeat and unique. The easy flows of the renderings were highly commendable. Listeners will feel at ease even when they listen to the not-so-common taalas like Chaar Taal ke Sawari. The performance flow was like that of Trital. I mentioned Trital, because this is a tala that we commonly listen to and musicians commonly have command.

DM’s aesthetic sense and musical approach nicely justified the raga moods. It was a happy feeling to listen to some tabla support that especially took care not to over-do. It gave affectionate and careful support giving higher priority to the musicality. Even then, the tihais, and the divisions within the compositions, multiple speed variations [layakari] were awe-inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable.

The CD is a  a Collector’s Item and a treat for all groups of listeners.

The Tabla analysis was done by Pintu Saha.
