If “Music is wine” the following three intoxicationg instrumental pieces do live up to these remarks by Beethoven.
Sitar by Pandit Ravi Shanker
Sarod by Ustad Amjad Ali Khan :
Santoor by Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma:
“How does one put the spiritual significance of music on paper? Music transcends all languages and barriers and is the most beautiful communicative skill one can have. Music makes us all experience different emotions or the Navarasa as we call it. Different types of music, whether it is vocal or instrumental, Eastern or Western, Classical or Pop or folk from any part of the world can all be spiritual if it has the power to stir the soul of a person and transcend time for the moment. It makes one get goose-bumps in the body and mind and equates the highest mental orgasm and the release of grateful tears! “
~ Pt. Ravi Shanker.
