Saraswati (Alessandro Rusconi) shares a track from his CD, ‘Sensations’.
In this joyful, instrumental song I play the santoor, guitar, bass and the darbuka. While leaving the traditional ways of playing the santoor aside, I followed my creative energy and found a space full of joy, a space where there is no boundary between reality and imagination. This song which is part of my latest CD Sensations inspired me to make a video ‘between reality and imagination’. Tarani and I enjoyed ourselves while creating it, playing with the beautiful scenes offered by nature in the surrounding area where we live.

In his teens, Saraswati (Alessandro Rusconi) starts to play the guitar in rock clubs; he then studies bassoon at the conservatory in Bologna and, in the early 70s, receives his sannyas name and mala from Prabudhas, the first sannyasin in Milan. He visits many countries on cruise ships playing saxophone in a band. During a stay in India he buys a santoor and soon develops his own style of playing. Saraswati lives and works as a professional musician and composer in Tuscany, Italy. Facebook fan page
