The Making of Forgive and Forget

Following the release of our new album Char Taal and a Raga Rainbow we’re releasing a series of videos describing the making of some of the tracks. The first one features our song “Forgive and Forget” which is in raag Kaushik Dhwani. This piece was composed by Pratik Rao and features bansuri player Hasheel (a.k.a. Raag Rani), bass player Oriana Barbato and Anita Katakkar on tabla.

The original version of Forgive and Forget also features percussionist Zaynab Wilson.

Check it out on Bandcamp!
