This double-disc set contains three examples of Ali Akbar Khan playing alap the very advanced method of playing ragas that is as much a meditational or spiritual experience as it is a musical performance. Shri Rag -- a serious evening raga for the hours of sunset and twilight. It features the qualities of devotion and heroism with a touch of pathos. Pilu Baroowa -- A light-classical (and popular) raga that has a restless and charming mood. It is played in the late afternoon or evening. Ragini Iman Kalyan -- A classic evening raga that is played by most North Indian musicians. It features the moods of peace and devotion, love and joy, with a bit of sadness.
