I stumbled onto this ethereal Alhaiya Bilawal by Imrat Khan Sahab at Patrick Moutal's site -

http://moutal.eu/indian-music/audio-archives/instrumental/sitarsurbahar.html?start=5

And was completely bowled over. He has such a large discography !! Will the more seasoned listeners here please make some recommendations ? I have been a fanatic fan of UVK and have, consequently, not listened to much Imrat Khan at all. Quite shameful !!!


Take care all.

I haven't heard enough of him yet (anything I've heard so far has been alap) but there is something particularly devotional as the title suggests about his playing. His dynamics particularly...he plays so softly sometimes he draws the listener in, holding one's breath a bit, even.

Ahhh, there's the jhalla...

One of my favourite clips on the whole of YouTube.

Please have a listen to Ustad Khan's Rag Jog for surbahar! And his Darbari is among my favorites as well.

Slightly off-topic, but...

Quite amazing to hear the difference between this 64kbps mp3 and the original CD, which was recorded by the ultra-audiophile Waterlily Acoustics. Such attention to detail, lost forever...

Do you have the Rais Khansaheb Pebble Mill clips? I got them from Dr. Gandhi, but - to cut a long story short - no longer have the video files, just the audio.

Thanks very much. What delectable playing !!!! Truly awesome.


Nick, would you have any Imrat Khan in your mediafire account ? If so, would you point out the links, whenever you can ?

Thanks.
