Some people are born to be self destructive.. like Adnan Sami. Take a look at his career graph. Once known to possess the fastest fingers on the piano keyboard, Adnan Sami took his classical music lessons from none other than Santoor maestro, Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. Two decades ago, in 1990 he, together with Tabla wizard Ustad Zakir Hussain, created music that can safely be termed as sheer magic. It was at a live concert in Karachi, Pakistan. Classical instrumental music, Adnan is playing the piano, cannot get better than this. Wonder why the two magicians never collaborated again. Also wonder why Adnan Sami made a mess of his career and ..personal life.

This is a treat for the ears of any music lover. I would like to repeat what i have said earlier that this work that you are doing is historic in importance for reviving popular interest in hindustani classical music.
What is required now is wide publicity of this web site of yours so that more and more music lovers get involved in it. I personally, have told all my friends and reletives about the rich treasure of classical music that is available at this website. And whosoever has opened this site has thanked me for introducing it.
Thank you very much for sharing this and other beautiful music! Fantastic album!! I personally feel that one should not mix Adnan’s personal life with his music. Just my thinking.
Keep uploading similar great music for all of us! Thanks once again.
Buddy you simple rock! You collection is far far from amazing. However I am facing this mighty problem. I cannot download any of the music in your blog. Tried all possible alternatives. Can you please help?
Hipeee! It works in IE. And lord Good Lords, you are one helluva treasure chest ya! What a bloody collection!!! I THANK al my stars for having landed into your darn page ya! God BLESS you. Keep doing this Good Work!
As you may see, about a thousand songs have already been posted on this blog and more are being posted at regular interval. Most of these songs are high duration songs (15 min – 60 min). You can imagine the web space required for these files, if encoded at say, 128 kbps. There is a limit of server space and bandwidth usage with free web host servers.
Moreover, all the songs that I post are for sampling purpose only and encoded for smooth online streaming at all internet speeds. I take special care that they can be heard with clarity on laptop and PC speakers. Also, this is copyrighted stuff and best I can do is provide full version of the songs instead of 1 min clips. Visitors are expected to buy the original CD, if they like the music here.
THE MUSIC IS AS GOOD AS THE REMARKS OFFERED. THIS KIND OF MUSIC DID NOT REALLY NEED A TABLA MAESTRO LIKE ZAKIR HUSSAIN TO ACCOMPANY. I HAVE NO COMMENTS ON A SHISH OF PANDIT SHIV KUMAR SHARMA LIKE ADNAN SAMI.
A Beautiful album, I remember having this album on a Thomsun cassette, not only was it a great album the recording on that cassette was great, somehow I lost the cassette and now thanks to you for making this available.Thanks
