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 :)

Yes, sorry. I realized it only some minutes after I sent that comment. But
I couldn't delete that comment. Any idea on deleting sent comments?

Author Bhaskaran Krishnamurthi (790 years 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 SpittingMage ( ago)
Humbly, my spirit has denounced its roman-catholic background. As of now, I
will persue the path of the Buddah.

Author CMAsianMusic ( ago)
And do you like K.Bhaskaran playing Carnatic flute?

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 .............. thanks

Author CMAsianMusic ( ago)
I like K.Bhaskaran playing Carnatic flute. What does "empagide" mean?

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

Nah, men don't have the plastic flashy ones, it's kumkum powder.

Is that Raymond's dad playing Tabla?

Author Muraleedharan P.P ( ago)
@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

>> 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 (1046 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.

Is there a title to this piece?

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

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)
@jpfdlop The same to you!

Author jpfdlop ( ago)
@Karlfalcon, I am sorry, I have to apologize to you. I've read your comment
the wrong way! I've read the read the phrase as:"How can anyone find this
music entertaining?" without the word NOT, so that is the confusion I made.
So that was me that thought you were the obtuse and the smartass, which I
must withdraw with my sincere apologies! That means we agree on the idea
that everyone should find this music entertaining! Peace and good music!

Author Karlfalcon ( ago)
@jpfdlop 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)
@marcohahaha 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 marcohahaha ( ago)
was that woman even playing anything?

Author Jessica Fischer ( ago)
sound level is so low I can't hear anything

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.

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)

idiottttttttttttttttttttttttt tttttttttttttttttttttttt tttttt

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)
