This extended alap (jor & jhala are later stages of alap) is especially compelling, illustrating the way in which Z. M. Dagar (1929-1990) was able to plumb the depths of musical materials. In Hindustani music, Yaman is often considered the raga by which the great masters distinguish themselves, as well as the raga taught first to beginners, and nowhere is the duality of this relationship more clear than in the present performance.
