Love for the Conch

In his career as a spiritual musician Sri Chinmoy played quite a few different instruments the most was in Interlaken, where he performed on 170 different ones. The range goes from classical instruments like the Indian esraj, the violin, the sitar or the piano to more spontaneous ones. One of these was the conch. This natural sound instrument of mother earth fascinated him so much that he himself often played it at the beginning of his peace concerts but also appreciated it very much if his disciples played it together in a large group on special occasions such as his birthday celebrations in New York on August 27th.
