I am selling a very special, traditional Rudra Veena, for a very special friend.
The veena is Padmini, owned by Abdul Latif (Abdullah).
Abdullah is no longer able to play Padmini, but is still playing and
creating music. His latest instrument is an Oud.
I say this is a very special veena, because of the story Abdullah told me,
some years ago. Abdullah lives in an extremely dry climate... one of the
driest on the planet. One day, his wife came home and asked, "Are you
playing that Malhar raga?" In the middle of the desert landscape, locally, over
their house, it was raining!

Padmini comes from Bharatiya Tantuvadya Kendra in Miraj. Abdullah made
sure she was built with all of the proper materials and methods... physical
and spiritual. Abdullah told me she is teak. I can't tell.
She has recently had jawari by Scott Hackleman.

If you are interested, please send me a PM, private message.
