We hope you enjoy the sweet, ethereal and sublime quality of these esraj recordings.
On 22 May, 1979, Sri Chinmoy played on the esraj during a special programme offering tribute to the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The event was organised by the group ‘Peace Meditation at the United Nations’. During this function several members of the group performed some of Bach’s chamber music, and the group’s choir sang compositions by Sri Chinmoy dedicated to J.S. Bach. The function included contributions from guest speakers Miss Rosalyn Tureck and Professor Howard H. Cox.
