I am trying to listen to different artists. Can anyone recommend any of these artists and or ragas they may play.

SITAR:
Kalyani Roy
Shujaat Khan
Nishat Khan
Netai Bose
Bimal Mukherjee
Arvind Parikh
Subroto Roy Chowdhury
Sharmistha Sen


Indian Slide Guitar-
Debashish Bhattacharya


I just listen to the much discussed (see other thread) famous Bhairavi by Ustad Vilayat Khan. It was different- very emotional/
intense, almost unsettling versus soothing.


Also just listened to Shuddha Todi by ZM Dagar on Rudra Veena- very surbahar like, very enveloping/ relaxing.

Any Indian slide giutar someone might recommend?

Hi Neal,
I would recommend Indranil Bhattacharya, Shujaat Khan, and Shahid Parvez. I'm not familiar with the others although recognize some of the names.
On slide guitar I recommend Barun Kumar Pal.....he's very good and I believe was one of the pioneers of the instrument in ICM......

Hi guys;
Recently picked up a CD by Nikhil Banerjee from Khazana called "Raag Piloo". Its a fairly rare CD previously only issued in Europe (Swiss recorded I think). For an example of how he could blow your socks off at will, I recommend add that one, Remco.

Neal, another good indian slide guitarist is Brijbushan Kabra, recorded with Shivkumar Sharma and Hariprasad Chaurasia on a re-released sixties classic called "Call of the Valley". He became fairly well known along with another indian guitarist named Mohan Bhatt in those days.

Ordered the ZM Dagar CD "Raga Yaman" two months ago from Khazana. That sucker is still on backorder. Gonna pick it up somewhere else.....

Hey Russ,
There are two versions of the Zia Mohiuddin Dagar CD available: a single CD with only Raga Yaman and a double CD backed with another Raga (forgot which one)

Peace,

Remco

Hi All: I would highly recommend sitarist Kartik Seshadri. He�s Raviji�s �foremost senior disciple.� I have his �Live At Oberlin� CD which I bought at one of his concerts. If you like alap, this one (Bhimpalasi) is for you. IMHO, Karik is taking Ravis�s torch and is going to carry it to new heights (He�s only in his late 30s, or early 40s.) Check his website (www.kartikseshadri.com) for album and tour info.

Hi KK;
Kartick played Raga Bhimpalasi at my university here in southern New Mexico two years ago now. I got a seat in the front row. Wow! I don't know how his CDs sound, but I recommend attending his live concert if at all possible. Very good audience repoire and his playing is top notch.
