Here's a site where you can listen to recordings of Gokul Nag. For those not familiar - he was Ravi Shankar's (unacknowledged) first guru before Allauddin Khan. These are not studio recordings but rather informal ones made in his house in North Calcutta very late in his life. His jinhoti is so so sweet. Baba's influence on Ravi's early work is undeniable.

thanks for posting this.
Ive been listening to these segments alot the past few days and cant get them out of my head.. his sound is very emotional, sensitive and reach.
I was looking on the net for more and couldn't find anything. (ragarecords, where this link is from, seems to have no releases from him)
dose anybody know of more recordings?
any info is useful.

thanks
Ben

Keshav,

Yes very sweet. Also the Patdeep is excellent as Ben said.

There is influence on RS 's music no doubt. The meend work and gamaks are very similar at some point of time.
But RS's right hand bols, Krintans etc. are more varied in nature, frequent and clearly audible.
Of course Pt. Gokul Nag's record is old record and perhpas taken casually!

I would also love to get his full recording.
