Samay Chakra CD by Kala Ramnath & Ty Burhoe offers classical northern Indian violin and tabla instrumental music for yoga music and devotion.
Kala Ramnath stands today among the most outstanding instrumental musicaians of North India, born into a family of prodigious musical talent, which has given Indian music such violin legends as Prof. T.N. Krishnan and Dr. N. Rajam.
Kala's genius with the violin manifested itself from early childhood. A pre-eminent disciple of the legendary vocalist Pandit Jasraj, Kala has completely revolutionized violin technique and produces a sound so evocative of North Indian vocal music that today her violin is called "The Singing Violin."
Indian music revolves around the time cycle or Samay Chakra where the twenty four hours of the day has been divided into eight three hour sessions called Prahar starting and ending at 7AM. So for every three hours there is a change in Raga which in turn has an effect on nature and the human physiology and we have presented eight ragas according to the different time cycles of the day and night in the order given below:
Nat Bhairav / Devgiri Bilawal / Lankadahan Sarang / Multani /
Yaman / Malkauns / Darbari / Bhairavi
Brilliant !!! "Samay Chakra, the latest CD of violin virtuoso Kala Ramnath with Ty Burhoe on tabla is a true gem. The idea to showcase in one CD eight different ragas of the classical music of northern India, each one corresponding to the mood and feel of the eight periods of the day and night, is brilliant and the execution is excellent. Each track is like a full concert in ten minutes or less, where each Raga is developed with a beauty and conciseness that will surely please both the connoisseur and casual listener alike. Kala's violin playing is fascinating and Ty Burhoe's accompanies her with his characteristic melodic expression on the tabla. Each track highlights a different rhythm cycle exposing the listener to the width and depth of the musical tradition of India. If you play this CD at different times of the day, don't be surprised if you find yourself picking a new favorite track each time. This is a great debut for the first Tala Records CD dedicated to the classical music of India. Bravo!" ~ Camillo Scherer
