Chhide Raag Naad

This is truly a melancholic ecstasy. Bhai Baldeep Singh with Sukhwinder Singh, playing Shaan. As the video points, the duo immersed in the soul of Jodi so much so that they kept the audience tied for 3 hours in a concert performance supposed to be of much less time.

Notice the difference between the sounds of smaller sibling of the Jodi (Daya waj) of BBS and of Sukhwinder. BBS must have made his own "big" smaller sibling, while Sukhwinder is playing the normal one. Also notice the flying bits of wet dough (kneaded atta) that makes BBS re-apply it frequently.
