WRITING

Living Music: Conversations with Pandit Dinkar Kaikini, is the dialogue between a sincere guru and an earnest disciple, in which a realized soul explains his philosophy of Hindustānī Rāgsangīt and his personal journey to becoming a consummate performer, composer, scholar, and guru. In a very intimate portrait of the man and the musician, Living Music explores Pandit Kaikini’s theories of sound, melody, rhythm, and creativity, while simultaneously following him during his life of courage, uncompromising devotion to music, and constant spiritual enquiry.
