I was talking to Siva last weekend about recording Indian Classical music and it was fascinating to discover the tremendous nuances in the music and in the recording of the music. He was explaining to me the painstaking effort that goes into just the mic setups to capture just the tabla as an example. Apparently it takes at least half an hour to get the sound right as the tabla player uses different areas of the tabla to "express" the work.

The good news is that several artists have started working with Acoustic Portrait to have their work recorded. These are artists who normally would never be in the spotlight and are now getting to showcase their talent. Some of these guys are unknown and have tremendous talent. Case in point being shenai player Rudresh Bhajantri whom Siva describes as a musicians' musician.



Let's hope that we continue to get more and more material from Acoustic Portrait Records going forward.

Hi
Nikhil
Glad to know how the people associated with the acoustic portrait worked hard for Indian classical music. Their endeavour to let some lesser known artists unfurl their talent is praiseworthy. Indian classical music is our rich legacy but the no. of listeners for this genre is less or limited. So let us hope their effort at least will increase that dwindling no. Please keep on writing such as this for the music enthusiasts.
Happy listening
