Pt. Sandip Chatterjee and Pt. Pravihave Godkhindi and Pt. Prakash shontake won admirers as much for their individual live concerts as for their recorded album “Mangal Dhwani” , brought out by Sagar Music and featuring Ragas Yaman, Keervani, and Bhopali showcased their flair as a team.
In Mangal Dhwani featuring five tracks ,where flute, santoor and guitar creates a world of exploration and enchantment. The flute, with its flowing meends and sustained contemplation , contrasts with the now gentle and now vigorous staccato expression of the santoor along with jhankar and meends of Guitar. Together they blend with the rhythmic essays of Ravindra Yavagal, famous both as a soloist and accompanist of the biggest names in Indian Music.
Each of this tracks is based on a ragas. Pravin, Sandip and Prakash combined common ragas like YAMAN with infrequent DHUN like Bhatiyali and Bhairavi and make this album on unusual experience.
