Very beautiful. Took me to Vrndavan. I love the Paul and Co. Harmonium. I bought a Pakrashi and regret not buying Paul and Company.

Just sell it like Mitwah did and get the paul & Co. Even if you lose some money, think of all the priceless joy and satisfaction you will get from the Paul & Co. 

How difficult is it to learn how to play that thing?

Playing  came naturally to me. There are only 7 notes, 7 days in the week; Shri Krishna flute had only 7 holes.  I am teaching some seniors and they are catching on quickly.

If you spare 15 to 30 mins a day, you can do it.

On a serious note guys. How many of you had the chance to learn to play a musical instrument growing up in Guyana?

I never did and that is something I missed by never venturing out to try and learn from someone 

We Muslims were not really encouraged to play musical instruments. It came naturally to many Hindus are they customarily belonged to kirtan bands.

Hmm I never knew that, what was the reason

The Prophet discouraged stringed instruments. Drums were allowed. So I guess Muslim leaders just decided to make in simple by discouraging all of them.

During elementary/high school days I played the saxophone, trumpet, drums, a bit on the guitar, plus a few other instruments for the fun and enjoyment but never continued after I started university studies.

I learnt to play basic harmonium in Guyana.

We lived near a mosque in Guyana and we never heard music. I asked the Mayjie and he said music is forbidden in Islam.

That was always the simple answer. As the saying goes, "beautify the Qur'an with your voice". In fact, it should have correctly said "beautify your voice with the Qur'an" as it is the Qur'an recitation that is beautiful regardless of who is reciting it.

'that inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy'

I had a DMS. Sold it and now own a Paul & Co. Lots of power and superb tone like the one in the video. BTW, that's my style of playing.

Very nice. I can play but not at that level.

I can play for anyone. Bhopali raag is the easiest, since it has only 5 notes. It's suitable for early mornings. Here are two of  my favs.
