I was cleaning up my bookmarks and ran across this site and
remembered (finally) to pass it on to forum-wallahs. The site
works a little funky in places but there are wonderful films
of the Dagar Bros. at Gwalior Palace and Thirakwa still in his
prime etc. Some truly magical stuff. Note: on some films you
may have to sit through a lot of images of palaces and who-
knows-what and then all of a sudden it will cut to fabulous
footage of great masters in their prime. So view patiently.
The drupad footage at Gwalior put goosebumps up and down
my arms and legs.

Go to the "SEARCH" menu and click the drop-down arrow that says "Movie Title". (They're in alphabetical order) About 13 titles down you'll see "Amhed Jaan Thirakawa" and just beneath that "Amir Khan" - others are further down the list. Click on the title you want to see then click the blue "SEARCH" button. That brings you to a page called "Search Results". Click on the button that says "56bps" or "128 bps" in either Real Player or Windows Media Player. Watch the movie!

You'll also want to mute/x the speaker icon for the background music on the main page at the end of the menu bar. :wink:

Doordarshan has just released a set of Ustad Amjab Ali Khan and some other musicians old recorded DVD's. Pt.Bhimsen Joshi too.

These would be a prized possession i believe.

Thanks,
Prabhakar
