Mallikarjun Mansur : Maestro’s Choice

He did not clothe himself in princely robes. He did not care to be the center of attraction. He was content to be inconspicuous. He continued to look like a shopkeeper’s accountant. He did not speak like an oracle. He rarely referred to his triumphs. He won not only the respect but the affection of his contemporaries. He was wholly without envy. His airs were what he sang. He did not put on any. That was Pandit Mallikarjun Mansur for you.

Three crisp songs from the maestro of the Jaipur Atrauli Gharana :

Comments are welcome.

Invite of the day : Can someone send me a few recordings of Shanti Hiranand (a disciple of Begum Akhtar) ?

    Extremely late comments, as I am a new entrant to the website.
    I had only heard about Pt Mallikarjuna Mansur, but could listen to due to the above entry.
    I have fallen in love with his singing. Truly g.g.g.g.reat…….
    Thanks !
