    Call Of The Valley- Pt Shiv Kumar Sharma/Hariprasad Chaurasia/Brij Bhusan Kabra

    This is my First Classical Release......


    Call of the Valley



    Call of the Valley is a 1967 Hindustani classical music album by Hariprasad Chaurasia, Brij Bhushan Kabra, and Shivkumar Sharma. It was recorded for the label EMI.
    The instrumental album follows a day in the life of an Indian shepherd from Kashmir. It is one of the most successful Indian albums and one that became popular with an international audience. It was very important in introducing Indian music to Western ears and internationally the best selling Indian music record. George Harrison, David Crosby, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and Roger McGuinn are fans of the album.The atmospheric music is traditional, but the innovative use of guitar and flute make the sound more acceptable for Western audiences. Kabra plays slide guitar, Sharma santoor and Chaurasia bansuri. The artists became well known musicians and the instruments they used became acceptable in traditional Indian music. Today Call of the Valley is considered a classic and a milestone in world music. Allmusic advises: "If the newcomer buys only one Indian classical recording, it should be "Call of the Valley"."
    The remastered edition has three bonus tracks.
    It is listed in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die by Robert Dimery and Michael Lydon.





    Pandit Shivkumar Sharma (born January 13, 1938, Jammu, India) is an Indian santoor player.The santoor is a folk instrument from the valley of Kashmir. Sharma is often referred to by the title Pundit
    orn in Jammu to the singer Uma Dutt Sharma. In a 1999 interview to rediff.com, Sharma said that his father started teaching him vocals and tabla when he was just five.He goes on to say that Uma Dutt Sharma did "extensive research" on santoor and decided that Shivkumar should be the first musician to play Indian classical music on santoor. So he started learning santoor at the age of 13. and made Uma Dutt Sharma's dream come true. He gave his first public performance in Bombay in 1955. His mother tongue is Dogri
    Shivkumar Sharma is the master instrumentalist of the santoor, after some years as a vocalist. He is credited with making the santoor a popular classical instrument. In a 1999 interview to rediff.com, Sharma said that it was his father who decided that he should play the santoor and that he never thought he would be choosing it when he started learning music. Sharma recorded his first solo album in 1960. Sharma composed the music of Shantaram's Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje (1965).
    In 1967, he teamed up with flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia and Brij Bhushan Kabra to produce a concept album, Call of the Valley (1967) which turned out to be one of the greatest hits in Indian classical music. He has composed music for many Hindi films in collaboration with Hariprasad Chaurasia starting with Silsila (1980). They came to be known as the 'Shiv-Hari' music duo.[11] Some of the movies they composed music for which were big musical hits are Faasle (1985), Chandni (1989), Lamhe (1991) and Darr (1993).
    Sharma married Manorama and has two sons. His son, Rahul, is also a santoor player and they perform together since 1996. In a 1999 interview to rediff.com, Sharma stated that he chose Rahul as his shishya because he thought he had the "gift of God".
    Sharma is the recipient of national and international awards, including an honorary citizenship of the city of Baltimore, USA, in 1985,the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1986 the Padma Shri in 1991, and the Padma Vibhushan in 2001.[20]

    Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia (born 1 July 1938) is an Indian classical instrumentalist. He is a player of the bansuri, the North Indian bamboo flute. Chaurasia is a classicist who has made a conscious effort to reach out and expand the audience for classical music.
    Hariprasad Chaurasia was born in Allahabad . His father was a wrestler. His mother died when he was four. He had to learn music without his father's knowledge, for his father wanted him to become a wrestler. He did go to the Akhada and train with his father for some time, although he also started learning music, and practicing at his friend's house. He often credits his wrestling training for giving him the immense stamina and lung power that are the hallmarks of his flute playing, stating that,
    I was not any good at wrestling. I went there only to please my father. But maybe because of the strength and stamina I built up then, I'm able to play the bansuri even to this day.
    Hariprasad Chaurasia started learning vocal music from his neighbour, Pandit Rajaram at the age of 15. Later, he switched to playing the flute under the tutelage of Pandit Bholanath Prasanna of Varanasi. Much later, while working for All India Radio, he received guidance from the reclusive Annapurna Devi, (daughter of Baba Allaudin Khan).
    He is considered a rare combination of innovator and traditionalist. He has expanded the expressive possibilities of the bansuri through his masterful blowing technique.
    Apart from classical music, he has made a mark as a Hindi language film music director along with Pt. Shivkumar Sharma, forming a group called Shiv-Hari. He has also collaborated with various world musicians in experimental cross-cultural performances, including the fusion group Shakti.
    He serves as the Artistic Director of the World Music Department at the Rotterdam Music Conservatory in the Netherlands.
    He has collaborated with several western musicians, including John McLaughlin and Jan Garbarek, and has also composed music for a number of Indian films. He has performed throughout the world winning acclaim from varied audiences and fellow musicians including Yehudi Menuhin and Jean-Pierre Rampal.
    Chaurasia is married to Anuradha, a classical vocalist. They have a son Rajiv.
