Bowing Sounds from Dawn to Moonlight Review

by John Storm Roberts

Still in his 30s, Ghosh is a leader in the movement to reverse the sarangi fiddle's decline as a classical instrument. With 27-year-old tabla player Yogesh Samsi, he plays five pieces based on ragas appropriate to the daily cycle (thus the silly title), one of them a semiclassical thumri. While the notes give general, biographical and musical information, they particularly focus on the instrument itself.
