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

Has any heard his daughter play? Does she have any CD's out?

Has anyone heard...Sharmistha Sen?

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,

Hi Neal,
Yea, Manilal is great....his daughter is supposed to release a CD soon through Raga Records but no sign of it yet, really looking forward to that! I have not heard Sharmistha Sen yet.........

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.
