I am learning this raga right now. Are there any good sitar recordings of raga Hindoli? or maybe violin recordings? what are the best vocal recordings?

This raga is also known as Kaushikdhwani or Bhinna Shadaj.
Not to be confused with Raga Hindol.

There is a very good version by PNB in the YT collection of Subrata Chowdhary but it strays from the main leitmotif presented by the vocalists


To my ear, the vocal renditions are much more intense and evocative especially these three

This raag is also known as Bhinna Sadaj and Kishori Amonkar and other Jaipur gharana singers have performed wonderful versions.
Here is one that is good but I cannot find the version that is my favorite


This is also very nice by Ashwini


A very famous bandish in this raga is the Yaad Piya Ki Aaaye by Bade Ghulam Ali
-- there is a shorter version too and many others singthis but BGAK is in a different league

By the way if you add a slight touch of P (mPm) in descent and a touch of R you basically have this turn into Hemant

Thanks a lot Kirya! That NB recording however is not Hindoli. Maybe some mixed raag? Too bad there are so little sitar recordings of this raag. I will check out the vocal recordings you mentioned as well.
