Interview with Mahadev Cometo, only:

« A sitar can have 18, 19, 20, or 21 strings. Six or seven of these are played strings which run over curved, raised frets, and the remainder are sympathetic strings (tarb, also known as taarif or tarafdaar) which run underneath the frets and resonate in sympathy with the played strings. The frets are movable, allowing fine tuning… », – Wikipedia

Mahadev Cometo – Made in India

One topic in the interview was about the book Mahadev Cometo – «Made in India». Below, pics from the book showing Mahadev’s sitar guru, Pandit Rabindra Narayan Goswami and Rajaneesh Tiwari teaching tabla at Banaras Hindu University (Varanasi).

As noted years ago…

« If the foxes stalk in the dark quarters of the city on quiet paws – when the birds chirp “Good-Night” to the starry sky and only the unobtrusive noise of the Limmat can be heard behind the station, – it is time for Superterz. »

« Wenn die Füchse auf leisen Pfoten durch die dunklen Quartiere der Stadt pirschen, wenn die Vögel in Richtung Sternenhimmel «gutnacht» zwitschern und hinter dem Bahnhof nur noch das unaufdringliche Rauschen der Limmat zu hören ist, dann ist es Zeit für Superterz. »
