Jan Müller-Szeraws' Bach, Ragas, and Wu-wei is a journey which reveals glimpses of the deep shared source of human creativity. The juxtaposition between East and West in the masterworks by Johann Sebastian Bach and Shirish Korde opens the listener's ears to a profound aural world, enabling fresh insight of the old and the new. 

The experience of listening to both Korde's and Bach's works touches on the profound and enigmatic Taoist concept of wu-wei, which can be translated as “not doing" or "effortless action". It presents an opportunity for the performer to aim for a state which is fresh, innocent and effortless, almost improvised.
