The Gurus of Bandish - Pandit Bhimsen Joshi - LIVE

The most widely accepted variety of Hindustani Classical Music today is called “Khayal”. Over the past fifty years,
Khayal has steadily gained popularity in comparison with ‘Dhrupad’, a form with simple grandeur and lack of
embellishments. Khayal, with its flexibility and ability to incorporate musical ornamentations, has effectively
regaled the new listeners of Indian Classical Music, the middle and upper middle class. “Khayal” being the most
popular and flexible form of Classical music rendition in India has to be presented in a concise form without
interfering with their mood and content. Here is a collection of personally selected “Bandishes” for renditions
from the rich and endless reservoir of compositions, which is presented by some of the most accomplished
vocalists of our times.
Pandit Bhimsen Joshi : Bhimsen Joshi has few equals in his field-be it in terms of popularity or deft renditions of
difficult passages. By now, he may well have given concerts that have exceeded the five-figure mark if we go by
the ‘modest’ guess-work of a few Bhimsen-watchers. His phenomenal professional career, spanning almost six
decades, convincingly shows that he has done something much more than fulfilling the hopes and expectations
raised by him in the early forties. It is also equally undeniable, that in the course of his fantastic climb to greater
and still greater heights, his approach to raga music has undergone many significant changes.

Rashid, the young genius…. Rashid Khan, who started his life as a child prodigy, has developed into a brilliant
musician and is today, one of the top vocalists of the Indian Classical Music world. His voice production and
application of notes have an intoxicating quality. His taans are his strongest points. The clarity, in spite of the
breathtaking speed of the taans, which cascade like a fountain is remarkable. His innate musical sense makes
one feel, that he is a natural musician, and sings with the ease of a swan taking to water

AGRA GHARANA Parts 1 & 2
Format: VCD
Duration: Part 1 -  45 mins, Part 2 - 39 mins
Cat#: CCRT/005-6

Gharanas of music, although a subject so close to the heart of every musician, has rarely been
systematically studied. The concept of 'Gharana' is a riddle to many lovers of music. Gharanas are
not schools, or groups of artis inspired by a common tradtion or influenced by a common style.
Gharanas are more sectarian in their attitude and on the whole more akin to families of blood
relations. The programme looks deep into the traditions and legends of Agra Gharana in
Hindustani classical music.
