My kind of music
I know it’s unrelated to the present situations.
But the present situations are too miserable to talk about.
I can write about them everyday and cannot do anything more than just expressing my grief for all those who are suffering the worst of present situations. It surprises me why the government didn’t put a cap on the prices of essential medicines required to treat (as they say it) the virus. It has begun to evaluate over this decision. The central government has now decided to ban the export of Remdesivir.
There’s a lot of negativity in the air right now. So I turned to some good music to ease my anxiety.
My journey with music as therapy
As a teenager I only listened to Bollywood and English pop music. Eminem was the only rap singer I ever listened to. From the past 4-5 years I have been exploring Indian classical music to relieve myself from stress. I mostly follow classical music made by artists like Rahul Deshpande and Anand Bhate. I got acquainted with their music through a Marathi film called Balgandharva. Another Marathi film that reintroduced Hindustani classical music in Indian cinema was Katyar Kaljat Ghusali. Both of the films are masterpieces. Timeless.
Recently, I mean a year back YouTube recommended me one of the musical stage show videos of the Sitar goddess Anoushka Shankar. I found it embarrassing that being an Indian it took me 25 years to discover her! She could really call all the Gods and Goddesses on earth and please them with her Sitar.
And the ultimate legendary musical duo is,
AR Rahman and Gulzar! Do I need to explain any further?
Music around the world that pleases me
Andalusian, Nordic and anything composed by the 2CELLOS are in my playlist. Especially the Kulning or herding calls of Nordic music allows me to go deeper into my spiritual side. I mean it’s my personal observation whenever I listen to Nordic music while meditating I feel more relaxed. Listen to Andalusian whenever you feel exhausted..the music can inject sudden positive energy into your soul. And just checkout the 2CELLOS you’ll thank me for lifetime!
