Dear Gupta ji, I told you ,if anyone could find Raag Nand by Arati ji it would be you, but unfortunately I cannot even listen to it since I use a Mac. Could you please post it on mediafire. I’m registered there under my email address.
Thanks in advance
I stumbled onto your blog while trying to read about Begum Akhtar. I am a Mumbai based journalist interested in classical music. I know I am late, but I am currently in the process of discovering the genius of Begum Akhtar. Though Ae Mohabbat Tere Anjam Pe is perhaps more popular of her ghazals, but what floored me completely were Kuch Toh Duniya Ki Inaayat Ne Dil Td Diya, and Sar Mein Sauda Bhi Nahi included in the CD Best of Begum Akhtar.
Could you suggest me more resources to read and know Begum’s music and her personality? Also do you have any information about when and in what circumstances Kuch Toh Duniya Ki was recorded? Has she sung this live often?
would be grateful for any info you could give. thanks
Although I do have a decent collection of Ghazals by various artists, but normally I don’t post them on this blog, mainly to preserve the pure classical nature of the blog. However there is lot of info available on the web regarding Begum Akhtar. To start with you may visit :
thanks much for yr efforts. really appreciate it. I was wondering, if you can send me links for various bhupali renditions you have found. If there is one vilambit by Rashid Khan, that will be awesome.
