quote of the day: the spirit of music

6 04 2016

The younger players have plenty of stage presence and bravado. But what I consider to be the real spirituality of the music, that’s really being lost. That feeling of raags as being entities, as being something that’s not man-made, but distilled, channelled from somewhere or other. Musicians have this feeling. And I know when I’m capturing the raag and when I’m not. There’s something inviolable about that.
