Musings and meends

Here are some thoughts and waypoints. Albums releases and works. Expositions.


Mistry & Rossi – Road to India Released

Sarod player and composer Bhargav Mistry – the composer behind the band “Shivoham” (listen to the sublime and austere “Shankara”Shankara and the lush, grandiose “Shanti Mantras”Shanti mantras (Peace Mantras)), takes here a break to enjoy a carefree handling of his sarod in Cool Jazz mode, inviting us to a pleasurable Easy Listening session.

Shivoham Shanti Released

Shivoham is a band with industrial designer-cum-Sarod exponent Bhargav Mistry at its centre. After its successful album Shankara, which musically explored poems of Adi Shankaracharya, Shivoham is now back with another album that concentrates on ancient Shanti Mantras.
