A masterful, evocative and meditative recording by Daya Shankar of the rarely heard wind instrument, shehnai.

This performance by Daya Shankar was captured on the opening night of the twelve day annual Saptak music festival in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on the 1st January 2004. He begins his recital with Maru Behag, a playful raga associated with the evening time. Each raga is assigned to a particular time of day or season and is invested with the power to evoke a state of feeling related to both the human condition and to nature. Most members of the Kalyan family of ragas including Maru Behag belong to a time of calm introspection and radiate a feeling of deep serenity typical of early evening.
