Dadra- Jamuna kinare mora gaon

Very nice rendition by Smt. Pratibha Atre of Jamuna kinare mora gaon. We have also heard a brilliant rendition of this dadra by Bhuvnesh Komkalli(kumar gandharva's son).

Avaghachi sansar

When a culture/tradition/nation produces such 21 yr olds what can you call it ... a pathological case of  ego-inflation ? :-) :-)

Sung wonderfully by madhuvanti dandekar. I have the feeling that in chorus, this will sound even better.

Ravi Shankar- Tilak Kamod

For reasons best understood after careful listening of this video, Shri Ravi Shankar will remain one of the most "emotive" musicians of our time.

Tilak Kamod.

Raag Kedar

Pilu and kedar are so hard to dislike in any mood. Both in drut and vilambit they have this colorful playfulness attached to them. I love the rendition by Ustad Bade gulam ali khan of Albeli naar. We have also heard our friend Sriram parasuram, But I think this one by Rajan Sajan Mishra is as good as the one by BGAK if not better. So enjoy this gem by the demigods of Kashi.

PS: a version of this by Sriram Parasuram was also posted by me some years ago on this blog.
