I can't see the video (poor bandwidth) but I was fortunate to catch Kushal Das in conccert in Kolkata some time ago, I think 2001, and that was enough for me to move him to number one place in my list of sitarists I'd want to see..... Brilliant.

He seems like a good guy too. He was here a few years ago and we had a workshop. I hope he comes back.

I've seen Kushal Das three times here in the past couple of years. I really appreciated his playing, and he is high on my list opf favorites. The last time I saw him it was great as suual but, during the really fast sections, I feared he was bitten by the speed bug and some of his really fast playing in both the fast jor/jhalla and gat sections lost some of the cohesiveness I immediately began to associate with him. This is NOT a slam. He is still a real favorite. I just hope he does not start to become too speed conscious. There is so much more to beauty than speed.
