Beyond Barriers

True to its title, the album frees the mind of stress and other bondages. While Vishwa Kauns is ideal for soirees, Ahir Bhairav gives the album a perfect morning rendition. Tabla player Prithviraj Mishra accompanies both father and son in this album.

A globetrotting instrumentalist who was also nominated for the Canadian Grammys in 2010, Salil feels that it is the Indian classical musicians "rigidity and orthodox attitude" that doesn't get many to a pedestal such as the Grammys,except for favourites such as Ravi Shankar and family and AR Rahman. "We live closed lives, with our misconceptions and inhibitions. We need to shed all this and do more collaborations," he says.

As for the raga, it has not been patented or copyrighted yet. "All we need is the credit, that's all," says Salil.

Salil Bhatt will perform alongside table maestro Cassius Khan organised at Pracheen Kala Kendra, Sector 35, on December 11, 6:30 pm onwards
