Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha - Three Sitar Pieces LP
Label: Manufactured Recordings
Manufactured Recordings reissues Three Sitar Pieces by trained instrumentalist Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha, originally released on Vic Keary's underground label, Mushroom Records, in the early '70s. While Vic Keary's background was in reggae, Mushroom Records dabbled in recording a bit of everything. Mostly known for hyper-rare psych, prog and acid folk, Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha's LP fits in perfectly with their British psych and prog label mates like Simon Finn, Magic Carpet, and Chillum. Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha, known for his fine-tuned skills on the sitar, showcases his virtuosity on Three Sitar Pieces. The exploration of his musical energy and verve is apparent in every note. Delicate, bold, sweet or even querulous various rhythmical flashes set the mood while he emanates supreme confidence and accomplishment on the sitar.
