Buy THE WEAVER'S SONG: BHAJANS OF NORTH INDIA

Stan Scott: The Weaver

These unique programs include the sophisticated melodies and rhythms of North Indian classical music, devotional and philosophical songs (bhajans) of the great medieval Hindi poets, and songs of love, work, social life and worship in Bengal, Bangladesh, Assam and Meghalaya.  The lively rhythms of east Indian folk music provide a complementary contrast to the serious, contemplative mood of Hindustani classical music.  Dr. Scott sings and plays guitar, accompanied by the Rangila Chorus and virtuoso accompanists on tabla (drums), Indian harmonium, and bansuri (bamboo flute).
