Man, these are the real 21st century treasures. I was dying to listen to these great masters since last century. You have just made a poor soul very happy again. Thanks very much.
Please, keep searching for those treasures, keep will be blessed with a great Nikaas.
Kathe Maharaj with a great bayan, Anokelaji with amazing na's and Godaiji playing as if the 16:30 Delhi to Benaras train was chasing him...what else can a man ask for? Not even heaven compares to this.
