Songs of the Divas 5

Watching an young Rashid Khan perform in a concert, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi once remarked, “There is now atleast one person in sight who is an assurance for the future of Hindustani classical vocal music“. This was in fact, until a few years ago, the main concern of most connoisseurs of Hindustani vocal music, about whether its tradition of excellence would continue. Fortunately, young singers of today have lived up to the expectations of Indian classical music lovers. Presented here, are four very young women classical singers, who I believe are very talented and immensely gifted artists.

    your enthusiasm is infectious but brinda and prachi are like air sugam sangeet singers with cloying sweet thin voices. the other two are much better especially ratna basu.

    @ shamazaidi

    My mistake. I posted the wrong songs. I still believe both Brinda and Prachi are extremely talented. Both are classically trained.
