Ustad Z. Fariduddin Dagar (b.1933) is the younger brother of vainika Ustad Z.M. Dagar, and the senior living member of the Dagar family. This is his only solo recording, and so of unique value. My one lament is that the backing vocalists are frequently evident. The singing style itself passes quickly from being very quiet to very animated and back.

The two brothers can be heard in jugalbandi on a more recent release.

To purchasing information for this disc.
