I am sharing below the link of my new video
”Anjuna Beach Blues” r />
This 'Bansuri' music, with complementary images of nature in the video is played to create a spiritual experience, to take you into a meditative state of mind by switching off the left side of your brain, provided you listen to it under Candle or lamp light.
'Anjuna Beach Blues' is a tribute to all my friends with whom I have rich memories of this Beach. I am sure the melody will take all you music lovers there.
Thanks to Dr. Len Anderson – U.S.A. my Guru, for encouraging me and for giving me ideas to create this melody.
Thanks to my friend Mr. Vasant Naik ( Nana ) and his staff of 'Avlon Sun Set Café', as the video was shot opposite his Café in Anjuna.
Please download and play on your Home Theatre as the recording is done to suit Home Theatre.
Enjoy the “Spiritual Experience of Bansuri”
History of the song : “Elk River Blues”
I’ve always loved this song- Elk River Blues- by a fiddler named Ernie Carpenter. He wrote it while depressed about his lifelong-home on the Elk River in West Virginia being flooded when Sutton Lake was made in the 1950s. Carpenter’s family had lived on the Elk since the 1700s. He had hired a lobbyist, sued, taken every road he could to save his home and couldn’t. For several years while the dam was constructed, he played a cat-and-mouse game with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers after the area was closed off. After they closed the main roads, he came via backroad, and as the feds found his backroads in, they closed them off one by one. After his homeplace was forever underwater, he wrote Elk River Blues.
Coincidentally I was talking to amazing fiddler, guitarist, singer and songwriter Jesse Milnes- he of Sweetback Sisters fame- about this song at the annual Christmas show the Sisters play at Jalopy Theatre. He told me it was actually his father, Gerry Milnes, who suggested the song’s name to Carpenter. How cool!

West Va. fiddler Ernie Carpenter wrote this tune while thinking about his family's long-time home which was about to be lost due to the government's plan to dam the Elk River and flood the area.
I played this song by creating a backing track & in bit of jazz style & changed the name
Appreciate your sincere comments & feedback thanks
Love & Peace
