The Banyan Tree is a 17-note melody
(5-note phrase, 7-note phrase, 5-note phrase)
written originally for the bansuri (an East Indian flute),
but played here by Zamula on the silver flute. 
The Banyan is an East Indian fig tree of the Mulberry family.
Its branches send out shoots which grow down to the soil
 and root to form secondary trunks.
