"Call of the valley" is to Indian classical music what "Hamlet" is to the English theater or "Mona lisa" is to the European painting - a milestone that is destined to remain the gold- standard forever. Quite possibly the highest selling album of Indian classical or instrumental album of all time, it is still finding - after three decades - new listeners who find listening to the album to be one of the most fulfilling experiences of their life. The music is simple. It is profound. It is mesmerizing. It is also revolutionary. On santoor(hammered dulcimer), flute and guitar three maestros created six simple pieces, about six-seven minutes each, and presented essence of six ragas. They say the theme is romantic. One of the instruments represents the natural ambiance and the other two represent a man and a woman courting. You may or may not get this but you will understand that this are hymns to mother nature. The beauty is that you don't have to be a connoisseur, you don't even have to know the first thing about Indian classical music to enjoy this. It simply pulls you in. In fact this is the music that has initiated hundreds of thousands of young people in India into the Classical music - even if just as a listener. As you learn more about the classical music your pleasure turns into respect for the music that you know took more evolved individuals than an average person or an average musician to create!
