Is this playlist safe for work?



Modes in Hindu music are referred to as ragas but the term is much more complex than that. The raga incorporates rhythms, scales, the importance of particular pitches within the scales, patterns for raising and lowering the pitch, ornaments, how long a piece of music will last, and even the expressive characteristics required in a particular work. The use of different ragas is seasonally contingent.

“I will try, like them
to be my own silence:
and this is difficult. The whole
world is secretly on fire. The stones
burn, even the stones they burn me.
How can a man be still or
listen to all things burning?
How can he dare to sit with them
when all their silence is on fire?”

This is the first time I listen to 'Ragas', but I'm fascinated! O_o Janet, could you please tell me if there is somewhere I can get this mp3 files from? I wouldn't mind paying for them! ^_^

Fantastic collection ! Being in Indian i couldnt possibly imagine put it all together myself . Good work Janet.
