AllMusic Review by

These are late-period recordings by the great sitar master Ustad Vilayat Khan, recorded in the 1970s. There are two ragas -- "Raga Bageshri" played in vilambit teentaal and drut teentaal, and "Raga Shahana" played in drut ektaal -- with uncredited accompaniment on sarod and tablas. Khan was a spiritual as well as musical master and a great theorist on the unity of sound as it plays a role in the development of the individual. The sound is excellent throughout, and the price is definitely right.
