Ustad Shahid Parvez - Live In Concert DVD released!

This DVD offers more than 76 minutes of live concert footage, with chapters dividing each section of the Raga for easy navigation. This DVD also features an educational video featurette which explains the meaning of the different terms used in Indian Classical music. The featurette takes the viewer through actual portions of the performance and defines phrases such as Jod, Jhala, and Teental in terms of their relevance to the music being performed, such as Jod being the connecting portion in Aalap between the rhythmic and non rhythmic portions.

Raga: Bihag (Alap, Jor Jhala) & (Gat in Vilambit and Drut Teental)
