Kala Ramnath (violin)
Ty Burhoe (tabla)
Classical music of India revolves around the time cycle or Samay Chakra where the twenty four hours of the day has been divided into eight three hour sessions called Prahar starting and ending at 7AM. So for every three hours there is a change in Raga which in turn has an effect on nature and the human physiology and we have presented eight ragas according to the different time cycles of the day and night in the order given below:
Nat Bhairav / Devgiri Bilawal / Lankadahan Sarang / Multani /
Yaman / Malkauns / Darbari / Bhairavi

"Samay Chakra, the latest CD of violin virtuoso Kala Ramnath with Ty Burhoe on tabla is a true gem. The idea to showcase in one CD eight different ragas of the classical music of northern India, each one corresponding to the mood and feel of the eight periods of the day and night, is brilliant and the execution is excellent. Each track is like a full concert in ten minutes or less, where each Raga is developed with a beauty and conciseness that will surely please both the connoisseur and casual listener alike. Kala's violin playing is fascinating and Ty Burhoe's accompanies her with his characteristic melodic expression on the tabla. Each track highlights a different rhythm cycle exposing the listener to the width and depth of the musical tradition of India. If you play this CD at different times of the day, don't be surprised if you find yourself picking a new favorite track each time. This is a great debut for the first Tala Records CD dedicated to the classical music of India. Bravo!"

The Singing Violin
Samay Chakra is the time cycle around which Indian Classical music revolves. In every twenty-four-hour day there are eight-three-hour sessions called prahar beginning at 7am. Every three hours there is a change in raga, which has an effect on nature and the human physiology. Kala Ramnath, one of North India's greatest living instrumentalists studied with renowned vocalist, Pandit Jesraj. She has so completely revolutionized violin technique to emulate North Indian vocals that hers is called "the singing violin."
Accompanying on tabla is Ty Burhoe, a disciple of the maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain. Together they present eight ragas for one full time cycle of day and night. Each raga is like a mini-concert, expressed with thrilling beauty and conciseness that will appeal to Indian Classical music fans as well as the casual listener.

Kala Ramnath is a virtuoso of the violin. In her hands, the classic instrument takes on a completely new and unique sound, reminiscent of the sarangi. On SAMAY CHAKRA, Ramnath joins with percussionist Ty Burhoe for a journey into the heart of Indian classical music. The slinky, slightly droning sound of the violin provides the harmonic focal point of the album, twisting and twirling amidst the rich thump of Burhoe’s tabla drum. The music has a relaxed pace and an introspective tone.
