granvat’s 8th release, “Ajanma” takes a unique place in the discography of the North Indian flute legend Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia.
The recording was captured in a small 16th century Church in Rhoon, Netherlands in June 2014, which is well known for the character and quality of it’s acoustics.
This double CD is comprised of two solo improvisations accompanied by a tanpura and a short piece of flute without the usual tanpura drone.
The deliberate omission of a percussion accompaniment allows Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia to take his flute on an intimate journey, carrying the listener through the honesty, density of colour and lyrical architecture of the world of sound.
Hariprasad Chaurasia’s patience and the purity of his musical mind enable him to use his flute to illuminate the landscapes of the listener’s imagination, making this recording a truly profound, intimate and meditative communication with the maestro.’
