The buttery softness of the bansuri flute is a good indication that we're headed into the dreamy, sensual world of Indian music this time. When it comes to quietly ecstatic, subtly skillful music making, Indian classical music is hard to beat; these days it's often enhanced by electronics and a bit of studio magic. And here at the official beginning of summer, it's just the thing to get you in tune and flowing with the season.
Music is by ANOUSHKA SHANKAR (Ravi's daughter), JAI UTTAL and BEN LEINBACH, CHINMAYA DUNSTER, PAUL AVGERINOS, MANOSE SINGH, DAVID PARSONS, and AL GROMER KHAN. It's a warm weather raga...on this summer solstice edition of Hearts of Space.
