The South Indian violin virtuoso, L. Shankar, presents a dazzling rendition of a traditional rag in untraditional terms. He plays in a rhythm cycle of 4-3/4, beats, difficult enough to maintain, let alone be as musically creative as these three. The energy is consistently high, and there are a lot of solos by each musician, as well as deftly coordinated unison passages.
