Pt. Ronu Majumdar has released a new music album that recently hit stores called “Garland of Ragas” on Worldwide Records. In this album, Majumdar has deftly woven together a fascinating string of ragas. The ragas belong to different time slots. The first three are played or sung in the morning. The fourth and the fifth belong to the late afternoon. The concluding piece is a Hori in raga Kafi, a late night raga. Pandit Ronu Majumdar rendering of these ragas communicates the mood associated with them.
