Reviews For Lyrical Sitar By Artist Pandit Nikhil Banerjee

  • Last song

    By randomresonance
    The last tune seems to be "Gram Chara ei Ranga Matir Poth" - a Bengali folk song. The name roughly translates to "The Red-earth Path from the Village".
  • Sitar at top

    By Shatatantri
    Nikhil Banerjee is a Sitar exponent who had been famous for his sweet tone sitar and a very talented musician himself. Raga Nat Bhairav is specially very sweet and cant stop listening to it again and again. What a bargain is this album ! The folk tune at the end depicts the eastern Indian influence on this artist's Sitar playing, he being from that region. I was able to relate the tune with many songs from the Indian Hindi Cinema. very nice !

  • Excellent recording

    By stringdude
    This is an excellent piece of Indian classical music with a good mix of sublime and light classical ragas. Nikhil Banerjee's albums are hard to find and it is good to see this on iTunes.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
