Jersey City (New Jersey), USA –
Company has released One Thousand Minds (ABC#Ol2) by Veena
It is a special edition numbered release
with a 20-page booklet and folded bilingual lyric sheet, enclosed in 5″ audio-reel box. Veena
Sahasrabuddhe is one of
today’s premiere Hindustani (i.e. North Indian) classical singers.
Born in 1948 to an outstanding family of musicians and teachers, Veena
Sahasrabuddhe was first trained in kathak dance and then tutored in music by her
father and her older brother, the late Kashmalh Shankar Bodas. Her contributions
to Indian music have earned her many honors, among them the prestigious Uttar
Pradesh Sangeet Natak Akedemi Award. Ms. Sahasrabuddhe has performed in
Australia, North America, Europe, the Middle East and, of course, throughout
India. She is known and respected for her directness and extraordinary intensity
of performance. Her slow, lingering, non-defined vocal frequencies border on
improvisation and demonstrate a total command of abilities. One Thousand Minds perfectly showcases Veena
Sahasrabuddhe‘s unique yet
classical approach to Hindustani music. She has over forty other recordings to
her name, on such labels as HMV, BMG-Crescendo and Sony, but One Thousand Minds is her very first American release.
This special edition is limited to 1000 numbered copies and includes a 20-page
photo journal of Veena
Sahasrabuddhe‘s musical history and a lyric sheet in
Devanagari with English translations and phonetic spellings. These items are
enclosed in sealed 5″ audio-reel box with a full-color glossy cover.
The CD is available from Abaton Book
