Carnatic music lovers must surely have visited http://www.sangeethapriya.org/, one of the biggest archives of Carnatic music concert recordings. This is an exclusive website of classical music ‘rasikas‘, maintained and run by them purely to share the ‘live concert’ recordings owned by them with other ‘rasikas‘. Commercial (studio) recordings are not permitted on this site.
Some of the members here have uploaded many recordings of ‘hindustani classical music’ too.
Two of my favorites are :
HMG Murthy‘s folders :
You will find very good recordings of Ajoy Chakrabarty, Rashid Khan, Parween Sultana and many more in live concert here.
Another one is :
Raju Asokan‘s folders :
This one has an exclusive folder for hindustani classical music and is more elaborate in it’s listing. You will find most of the ‘Gharanas’ featured here. This one will keep you busy downloading for quite sometime. Again a big respite from eSnips. You will miss the ‘details’ feature of eSnips though, as none of the files have description and are listed ftp style. You could be spending much of your time in figuring out what to find where.
