Extraordinary Sarangi | Kamal Sabri | Raag Shree | Music of India

Indian classical music at its best...
Kamal Sabri plays Raag Shree on the sarangi
He started practising sarangi as a teenager - rather late for someone in a hereditary sarangi family. He has performed widely in India and abroad and does lots of fusion music.
The Sarangi is an unusual instrument - bowed like a violin but the notes are chosen with the tops of the finger, finding each note with the cuticles and fingernails.
It is the only instrument which can produce almost all the nuances of vocal music of any style, be it dhrupad, khayal, thumri, tappa or bhajan or even ghazal, with exact embellishments and intonations.
Raag Shree is a very old North Indian raga of the Purvi thaat, and has traditionally been associated with Lord Shiva. Its mood is one of majesty combined with prayerful meditation and is traditionally performed at sunset.

The Darbar Festival was born as a tribute to celebrate the life and memory of Bhai Gurmeet Singh Ji Virdee, an inspirational tabla player who taught thousands of children in the UK over a 30 year period. The Darbar Festival has since grown into an annual festival at the UK's most prestigious venues, bringing together the finest Hindustani, Carnatic, dhrupad and percussion from Indian classical genres, as well as dance.
Darbar Arts Culture Heritage Trust is a registered charity in the UK, established to champion Indian classical arts through high quality live events, digital work and education. Our YouTube channel aims to bring you excerpts from our digital archives from live events, informative videos about Indian classical music as well as insights from artists themselves. Many of you have asked us to upload full concerts. We are committed to doing this but need to raise more funds to cover the costs of producing full length concerts.
For more information about our work see www.darbar.org. Please sign up to our newsletter for live events; subscribe to the Darbar YouTube channel for the latest digital work and please donate what you can so we can continue to ensure that global audiences can experience one of the finest art forms in the world.
