Kishori Amonkar : four ragas

Believed by many as the finest female vocalist of her generation, Kishori Amonkar has been blessed with a naturally melodious voice. The distinguishing feature of her performance is the effortlessness with which she presents the ragas. Her renderings keep intact the tradition of the Jaipur gharana without being tradition bound, thus winning the acclaim of purists as well as laymen. Kishori Amonkar’s mother, the illustrious Mogubai Kurdekar, told her once: “Sing for the nature and everything will respond to you.” How true were those words. Birds, animals, trees, the grass and even the sun seem to reciprocate when Kishori Amonkar sings.

    It is good to see her concentrate on Classical music shifting away from Filmy music after “Geet Gaya Pattaron ne”.

    One way we are all lucky to have her on the classical track of the Indian Classical Music. I wish her success in all her endeavours.
    All the best and good luck
    with blessings

    While listening to Vidushi Kishori Amonkar’s ‘Ud Ja Re Kaaga’ based on raga Bhinna Shadja, I find the raga similar to Kaushikdhwani. Are both the ragas same? Subhasis. (ghatak_s@in.com).
