Ustad Rahimuddin Dagar (1901 – 1976)

Ustad Rahimuddin Dagar

One more  illustrious and senior member from Dagar familly. Son of Ustad Allabande Khan, Ustad Rahimuddin Khan is said to be one of the most knowdgable one from the tradition. He knew Sanskrit and Persian languages and probably the first one to adopt the title “Dagar”.

Today we are going to listen to Raga Miyan Ki Todi (Alap and Dhrupad) sung by him.

Raga Miyan Ki Todi 25:46 (Alap & Dhrupad Kaun Bharam Bhule Ho Man Gyaani)

A few days ago, there was a post on Mehfil-E-Mausiqi,  Raga Miyan Ki Todi sung by Junior Dagar brothers Ustad N. Zahiruddin and N. Faiyazuddin. They too is said to have taken some guidence from Ustad-ji. It would be interesting to compare both the recrdings….

    Dear Readers,
    Well, we shall be releasing some outstanding live concert recordings of the great ustad under the world music heritage series – limited edition in a couple of months. The label is Anad Records Pvt ltd. The work is nearly done – will be perhaps a 6 CD illustrated booklet-album.
    These recordings were done between 1958-1961.
    BTW this recording is of Ustad R Fahimuddin Dagar and NOT of his father Ustad Rahimimuddin Dagar.

      I think the files is no longer on the server, but here it is (and yes, it’s Fahimuddin Dagar, the sone of A Rahimuddin Dagar)

      @Bhai Baldeep Singh: Dear sir, did Anad Records release the 6 CD package, by any chance? If so, any chances of making them commercially available? Thanks
