Hariprasad Chaurasia - Raga Darbari Kanada/Dhun In Raga Mishra Pilu
Adrian Utley: I found this album in a shop in Sydney when we were on tour in Australia 1998 and it has been probably my most consistently listened to album since. When I've been playing or in the studio too much I will only be able to listen to music like this which is so far from my normal world. It is inspirational, mediative and calm; an antidote to the crazy world I tend to find myself in. Hariprasad is such a beautiful and accomplished, spiritual player in the Indian classical tradition. Both of my children were born to his music.
