Humpback Whale / blows and voice
Dhruba Ghosh / sarangi

For years I have been fascinated by a particular Humpback Whale song recorded by my friend Dr. Roger Payne with hydrophones from a small sailboat off Bermuda. I call it the Song of Seven, since the whale repeats seven times the same sequence of four phrases: a high ascending two-note call, followed by a mid-range descending trumpet-groan, then an ascending two notes, ending with a contra-bass growl-moan.

Dhruba Ghosh found that one of his sarangi’s was in the same key of this whale’s song.
