Raga Mishra Bhairavi: Alap

Raga Mishra Bhairavi: Alap by Kronos Quartet on Grooveshark

Kronos Quartet here, from their excellent album Floodplain. I particularly love this track, and wish I could say something intelligent and enlightening about it. An alap, I do know, is a slow, unmetred exploration of the notes of a raga, but you could work that out for yourselves. Plainly, I can't say anything intelligent or enlightening, so just listen and float away on it.

This isn't music - it's audible air. The first time I was moved by such was the on the soundtrack over the opening titles of "The Jewel in The Crown". Such an evocation of the deepest of mysteries, dark, brooding longing of the soul and something almost forbidden just transfixes me.
