Author Alex Mathew Nilamel ( ago)
The joy of listening Bhaskaran is exceedingly beyond the ordinary.

Author Kiryl Kiryienka ( ago)
The first sounds of the flute in the start of video is simple from the parallel world. Success connecivity to another stage. I can't describe it, but I think many people can feel the same and understand me. 
Thank You many times for this present!
I just wonder - is there a progression to this form of sound anywhere in the world...As only one sound can be so powerful - what about the successfull progress of such forms of sound in whole melody.
I wish You to find the way of highest music, as You are ont the wright way

Thanks for Playing Flute at Krishna Temple,Gopalapuram.While I was worshiping god,U made me to sit and watch ur program.

Extraordinary Performance.....

Buddism is part of Hinduism.Hinduism is the base of all the religions. Ex: Buddhism, Jainism. Follow Hinduism if you really want to listen to these kind of music, coz buddhism follows single god bUDDAH (hindu Siddharth) which is not other than you following single god Christ! Hinduism is the greatest religion in the world :)

Hi Bhaskar sir superb music.
Dear friends before commenting please do study on the instrument and also on classical music. This is not tabla. This is flute

Pursue your heart, not a path that someone else has laid out. There, is where you will find true happiness.

Author Bhaskaran Krishnamurthi (791 year ago)
I dont understand your comment, - I AM K. Bhaskaran. I do like 'his' playing the carnatic flute. Otherwise he would not be playing it.

Author PowerFlower PsychoPaz ( ago)
Humbly, my spirit has denounced its roman-catholic background. As of now, I will persue the path of the Buddah.

Author Bhaskaran Krishnamurthi ( ago)
You can even check out Amazon for K Bhaskaran's CD tracks - The Indian TV National channel says that this artiste is also a leading/notable artiste - check out the link which has a video of the artiste's DD national program that contains a intro abt the artiste.. and you can check the wki page and other sites of the artiste ..............

Good one, but in all honesty that's not the Table, it's the Mridangam, which is much different than the Tabla.

@nickblattfilms The music played here belongs to Carnatic music (South indian classical / Eastern classical music) Ragam is Reetigowla. There are about half a dozen of famous flautists in south india. To name a few:

1. Shri K.S.Gopalakrishnan 2. Dr.N.Ramani 3. Shashank Subramaniam 4. Kudamaloor Janardhanan 5. Prapancham Sitaraman 6. Sikkil sisters trio (Sikkil Neela, Sikkil Kunjumani, Sikkil Mala Chandrasekhar)

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia is one of the famous flautist of Hindusthani music

Author bmkaruppan (651 year ago)
>> And of course, Sri Bhaskaran has rendered this great song, widely popularised by great vocal maestro MADURAI MANI IYER (d.1968, aged 56) - in such gripping melody. We must listen to him in live/ face-to-face concerts, more and we wish him many more years to enthrall us with the spiritual essence of Carnatic music which transcends, and liberates us from our mortal world of just finite dimensions.

Author bmkaruppan (1047 years ago)
May I make some comments on the song per se?The song, by PAAPANAASHAM SHIVAN,the immortal Tamil composer (also with a few Sanskrit compositions to his credit), is on LORD GANESHA who is invoked as an undertaking is being started.The song is a very simple one describing the Lord's attributes,with the first words meaning how His 'tattva' or mystic principle can be adequately understood by mortals.Raaga - REETI GAULA which is an attractive derivative of a full scale (Janaka)Raaga, Kharaharapriyaa..

If a anyone can accurately tell me the name of that flute i'd truly be grateful :)

Very skilled musicians and great music.
I really enjoyed it.

@Karlfalcon 20 people do it

Author Bhargav Sai ( ago)
@nickblattfilms This might be Carnatic music. You can check out Hariprasad Chaurasia for flute artists. But I guess what he is playing is South Indian prominent flute. There are various many artists, just google. Delve deeper into Indian Classical or Carnatic Music. I don't much about music, just trying to provide you some basic info.

Author nickblattfilms ( ago)
What is this type of music called? Any notable artists I can check out/CDs I should download? Anyone know?

Author EndofMusic ( ago)
@Karlfalcon I'd be proud of my Indian heritage if they invented harmony. But the Europeans did it first.

Author Academic1Researcher ( ago)
@ajwood123 Your'e really unintelligent to be saying things such as that.

Author Dylan Fink ( ago)
this reminds me of thick as a brick by jethro tull xD

Author terreseco ( ago)
In no other music, that is classical Indian music, have i heard such oneness. It is as if everyone involved is thinking and hearing the exact same thing, as if they are truely one. This is a very good example of that oneness! Wow! Oh and what western musician wouldn't want to be as tight as these guys. These guys and lady are sick tight! peace

Author Karlfalcon ( ago)
The same to you!

Author Karlfalcon ( ago)
Say what you mean, don't be obtuse.

Author fraskydingy ( ago)
@DCalifornian So, that's a tambura, not a sitar. It can't play a melody. It's just strummed like that to add an extra drone sound to the music. They're very very common in indian classical music.

Author fraskydingy ( ago)
She's playing tambura. It doesn't play a melody (it doesn't have any frets). It's just used to add to the overall sound of the music. It's an additional drone.

Author StripeBag ( ago)
aaah,so relaxing

Author citizenfitz ( ago)
@acidcrashguy Thanks for getting me straight. Brando truly had more sides to him than the Hope Diamond. America is the less for his passing.

Author citizenfitz ( ago)
I like how they brought Marlon Brando along to play the tabla. It's a side of him we rarely got to see.

Author TarjaTurunen1Fan ( ago)
I wasn't going 2 join in on this "intelligent" conversation but some things have been said that I will not stand by and let go without saying something...if you listen I'm assuming you how 2 do that right? If you listen 2 the video above you will plainly hear where western music has come from...Now, debate that oh brilliant one(s)

Author ksriniasu ( ago)
I would have preferred that he played the song at a slower tempo. It is a beautiful song in a beautiful raga, and at a slower tempo, he could have made more justice to the raga in general, and the kriti in particular

Author shankyxyz ( ago)
hey u shld add the tag reetigowlai. thanks

Author lawowalker ( ago)

Author Lucien Provencher ( ago)
Could not have said it better myself. Even after the novelty has worn off, I'm still totally fascinated by this music and looking for more.

Author defdeezy ( ago)
if it is jargon, then it is the jargon of expressing my love for this art form, something that cannot be expressed. so i suppose jargon is a good word to describe it, since words can only obfuscate. of course, you didn't mean that, but i prefer to take stupidity and mold it into something useful.

Author shankyxyz ( ago)
pramadam reetigowlai.. nice accompaniment by sivaraman mama.

Author defdeezy ( ago)
why can't it be both? there is such a thing as relaxing excitement! the awe of the synapse and the sedation of the soul and its void, particularly the western soul... heh. if such a thing exists, carnatic music must be it.

I think india needs to bind their music along with an orchestral sound kinda like alot of what China is doing these days, but still glad to se Indians havn't forgotten our classical music.

Author Bhaskaran Krishnamurthi ( ago)
Sheet music is well, I would not say impossible, but very very difficult, and at best it can approximate the exact representation -mainly because of Indian Classical 'nuances' called 'gamakas' and secondly improvisational, creative part of the music which is actually conceived and perfomred literally 'on-the-fly'....

Author leopoldo fuentes ( ago)
what is really dificult(but would be wonderful) would be to find sheet music
