Hello, I have been getting into Manilal Nag lately . His available recordings seem to be quite limited, so I was ecstatic when I came across 2 CD's that I had not seen until recently. So for those Manilal fans...Raga Nat Bhairav, Raga Dabari, Raga Mishra Kafi
I saw Sharmistha Sen 3 months ago: didn't like it at all!! She was very grumpy towards her felow musicians and the music didn't come alive at all. A friend of mine went to the concert the next day in Amsterdam and had the same experience.... hmmmmm....... In the same concertseries though I saw sarodplayer Tenjendra Majumdar: stunning, totally captivating......Probably the best Indian concert I've ever witnessed: the interplay between him and his tablaplayer bordered on telepathy!!! Peace, Remco
There are a few more CDs available of Pt. Nag on the Biswas (www.biswas.com I think), Raga Records, and JVC. I just purchased his Nat Bhairav (IMA) and am waiting to hear it. I think he plays the surbahar on the album also. Hopefully Mita's Ahir Bhairav from Raga Records should be out this year. She recorded it around 2 Springs ago (2001).
Just purchased Sen's IAM CD in CA and am waiting for it to arrive.
