hi all

in the vocal department one should not go past the Nazakat and Salamat Ali pair or Mohammad Hussain Sarahang who had some extraordinary ability with this particular raga and composed both ghazals and khiyals in it.

If there are just ''six tones'' in an octave [sic] then why have frets for tones that don't exist?

Hi All

I checked my collection of Bhopali and was surprised to find that the only Bhopali played on sitar I have is by Irshad. However I have three Bhopali recordings by Kishori as follows:-

PSLP 5130, Live at Nehru Centre Mumbai, CD released in 1989
Raga Bhoop, Prathama Sur Saadhe (29.41 minutes) and Jabse Tumeesana Laagalee
(5.07). Other raga on this CD - Bhinna Shadja, Ood Jaa Re Kaagaa and Anganaa More Aajaa (23.26)

PSLP5724, Live in Concert, recordings from The Music Festival For Rajiv
Gandhi Foundation, New Delhi, January 1992, CD released in 1993
Raga Bhoop, Prathama Sur Saadhe (21.34) and Jabse Tumeesana Laagalee
and Tarana (8.24). This CD also includes a Bhajan Jogiya Se Preet Kiya (13.35)

PSLP5816, Recreating a Dream, CD released in 1994
Raga Bhoop, Eree Aaj Bhailava Sukhva and Sahelare Aa Mil Gaye (21). Other ragas on this CD - Jaunpuri, Baje Jhananana and Chhum Chananana Bichhuva (18) and Pat Bihag, Dhan Dhan Mangal Gavo (10.56)

I haven't played for years)

Hi Kanti Dattani,

I have two questions for you,

1) you say that you have only one Bhupali sitar recording (Irshad Khan), yet in your list I also see a Nikhil Banerjee Cd, is that bhupali or what?
if so, I am very interested in that recording.

2) why do you write all the things that you have each time someone is talking about a specific raga ?? (also on the google forum)...not that I mind, but I am just curious.

Hi Barend,

Thank you for pointing out Nikhil Ji's Bhupali recording. This in fact is Bhoop Kalyan 28.13 minutes. It is on Chhanda Dhara CD SNCD70702 Live Concert Vol. 5 Live recording at San Francisco on 18.9.1976. The CD also includes Raga Sindhura 29 minutes. Tabla is by Zakir.

Answer to your second question is, demand from several enthusiasts, followed by many encouraging feedback that I receive including further discussions that follow.

Nice to hear from you, who has raised several interesting subjects.

Hi Barend,

As requested I have listed all the Chandrakauns I have.

As you now well know, not all these are recommended. I have just accumulated these CDs over the years, and some of them I rarely play! For further information, e.g Other ragas on each CD, our opinion, etc. please get in touch. I am not in music business. I buy CDs from local music stores in Leicester, England and other towns in UK and from all over the world. CDs are cheaper in India and USA.

I have heard a Ravi Shankar Bhoopali Alaap at St Xavier's Mumbai in 1985. Other than the interesting use of the kharaj,it was standard. It ran for not more than 25 minutes. I shall see if i can get it again and upload it soon.
