Vedic Shakas patha recital

A beautiful beautiful video of different forms of vedic recitals(Shakhas literally branches) from all parts of India(TN,KL,UK,UP,RJ,KN,BI). It contains portions of all 4 vedas and some brahmanas (Shatapatha and Gargi IIRC). Samveda portions are really exhilarating. I only wish there was more ghanapatha but then I have some good ghanapatha recordings with me. One thing which struck me was the White Yajurveda in Tamil nadu. Thus far, I had the impression that Shukla yajur is only in north India but anyway it was nice to hear that too. Transported me back to my grandfathers reciting the Shruti. Enjoy.

Man Mast hua phir kya bolen and leher leher

I had heard a fascinating rendition of this bhajan in fast tempo in Shanti Kunj some 15 yrs ago, since then I have been trying to find that version.... never been able to.

Here is one version by Tipannya, nice and  fast but still not quite the one I was looking for. Furthermore another composition by Kabir , "leher leher" might interest you.
