The raga 'Charu Keshi' belongs to Karnatik music which originates from southern India. The recording represents the first time a duet of Sitar and Vichitra Veena - this makes this album a true collectors' item. Rash Behari Datta and Dr. Mustafa Raza play Alaap followed by a Gat in Teentaal (16 beats cycle), accompanied by Sarvar Sabri on tablas. The overall mode of the raga is one of love and separation.
