Another great vocalist from Gwalior Gharana. His style is unpretentious and appears to be simple but in actually it is quite complex and intricate. Some of his recordings are presented for us to enjoy.
To start with – Raga Bhimpalasi. an extremely rare find. Most probably an All India Radio broadcast. In this recording Pandit-ji has sung a Saadara - composition in Jhaptala.
Another rare find, the next recording is an All India Radio broadcast – actual broadcast recorded on a reel tape. Though this one was released as an LP record in 1971 (EALP 1366 – Raga Kamod & Bageshree Kanada) but the LP version is edited. This one being the original broadcast – it is full length.
