Thank you for posting. I saw Zakir in concert at The Sage, Gateshead a few years ago. What a lovely and peaceful night it was.

Some years ago, I took a skeptical American friend to a flute recital  by HP Chaurasia at MIT. He came away a devotee. Thanks for this upload, a refined example of fusion music.

What a wonderful confluence of the instruments ! Right at the outset the soft flute notes act as a balm, something I need today. Thank you for this precious upload, Sharmaji.
