Raga Todi in Concert - Calcutta 1957

    Raga Todi
  1. alap (53'41)
  2. dhrupad - chautal (13'44)
  3. dhamar (8'54)

Sound quality: generally good (remastered professionally, few passages showing distortion; dhrupad proper strangely quiet)

Playing time: 76'23

Recording date: June 8, 1957 (Calcutta, Bharatiya Sanskriti Samsad)

This is the first volume in what is to be a series of archival releases.

It can very sensibly be compared to the recording of the same material by the Younger Dagar Brothers (who were, perhaps paradoxically, ~20 years older at the time of their recording than the present brothers were at the time of this one).

Another recording on this label:

Ragas Bihag, Kamboji, Malkosh
