Unfortunately, the scrambled letters that I am required to type in on MegaUpload are so hard to read that it is almost impossible to get them right. Could you please upload on Rapidshare or some other please. Sorry to be a bother, but I do really enjoy your uploads and would not like to miss out.
Many thanks.

Wow, this is great stuff, not your typical Indian vocal but very deep, slow, and gut-wrenching. This reminds me of why I first got interested in indian classical music.

thanks so much

For those interested, this is the oldest style of Indian Classical Music and it's called Dhrupad.

There were four main variants of dhrupad and one of them, dagarvani, is named after the Dagar family, which has carried on their musical heritage until today.

I'm glad people are enjoying this profound, deeply-felt music.

Can you please re-upload 3rd file (Raga Bhatiyar) from the album Chant Dhrupad. Its not available on megaupload.
Can you upload other releases on Dhrupad singing.
Very good post.

I would be very happy if you could refresh the links for the two albums that has gone sour on rapidshare.

Dagar Brothers with Mohanshya
and
Dagar Behag

It would be a great service to me and some friends that came late, thank you kindly!

I have been looking for these on other blogs but it seems no-one was even copying your post ;-)

I'll ask him for fresh links, if so they'll be posted here in the comments.
