  1. Been waiting for an update! yaaaay.

    One thing I’d like to request is Gorakh Kalyan by Veena Sahasrabuddhe; she does a vilambit khayal, madhya khayal, and then a tarana in this raag.

    Kalavati, Hansdhuni, Shankara, Gorakh Kalyan, Rageshri are all well appreciated by everyone, so more of these please!!

    Also, Begum Parveen Sultana and Ajoy Chakraborty are glaringly missing from this otherwise wonderful site… :)

    Just wondering why… ?

  2. I was waiting for an update too – thanks to all concerned. Mr Taimur I saw u perform on rising Pakistan. A few taans of bilaskhani todi which u rendered were enough to show that u r a promising artist who likes to improvise. I would appreciate if u mail me on my mail address thanks in advance good bye

  3. A truly wonderfull site. Congratulations and thanks to all involved in setting up this unparralled source of musical delight any where on the internet. Unfortunately I do not have a precious recording to offer, but I do have a request. This is Ustad Amir Khan Saheb’s LP recording of the vilambit jhumra taal khiyal, jinka re mana rama biraje, in raag Malkauns. I cannot find a commercial version anywhere, but if anyone has it in their collections and are kind enough to share it with us on this site, a world of thanks to them in advance!

  4. This is a wonderful site – a true khazana for music lovers. Chapeau to the creators of this site!
    I have a relatively big collection and want to share some of my music. Can anyone help me to manage updating files?

  5. Dear Sir,

    Ustad Hussain Bakhsh Gullo recordings must be published in large number at your website. Plus his name should also be edited on your website.
    It is just Bakhsh gullu mentioned on your website. So please update.

    If you want more recordings of khaansaab Hussain bakhsh I have some.

    You can contact me any time. thanks.

  6. Dear everyone,

    Thank you for this wonderfull website,
    I am a true lover of pakistan classical vocal music and looking for all recordings or videos from Nazakat & Salamat Ali Khan, Amanat & Fateh Ali Khan, Umeed & Ashiq Ali Khan, Chottey Ghulam Ali Khan, Akhtar & Zakir Hussain Khan, Asad Amanat & Hameed Ali Khan, Badaruzzaman & Qamaruzzaman, and all great ustads from “raga mala” and “gharanon ki gaiki” produced by Khurshid Anwar. I have already all commercial recordings and what is proposed on websites. I would like to exchange or buy, please contact me on
    I can offer all ustad sarahang’s discography (50 cds) and several films on dvd.

  7. Saqib Razaq, Thanks alot for the Durga, God Bless you…. i love this raag and i have couple of them but was looking for it on sarangi since years….Thanks again

  8. Reply to Zikriya: I have that recording with me. If the the site managers allow, I can upload it right away.
    To the site managers: Please be a little more careful about the recording quality and editing, visitors of your site would not mind larger downloads, if you do not mind bandwidth usage of your server 🙂

  9. You know…

    One person who I’ve always wondered about… she was the most famous of the female singers next to Lata….

    Noor Jehan. I know she has sung many ghazals along with film songs and some folk numbers. At any rate, I wanted to know if she had done any purely classical work… like at a concert or what not.

    Same goes for Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. While we all know he was Shahenshah-e-Qawwali…. and did excellent sargams…. why did he not ever sing a tarana? Or at least, I have not heard him singing one.

    This becomes especially apparent when you hear someone like Abida Parveen sing a tarana after “man kunto maula” but when Nusrat and party sang “man kunto maula” there was no tarana finish. Even the Sabri brothers whose “gharana” training I am unsure of, sang this tarana with ease. Does anyone know the backstory?

  10. Oh please! please, site managers, let the most gracious Mr Parthapratim upload the Ustad Amir Khan malkauns. It will surely be great value to all.

  11. well zeeshan!
    dunno abt noor jahan…but i have heard nusrat fateh ali khan’s khayal accompanied wid a tarana which he rendered in ,i reckon, 72 or 73 at faisalabad at his father’s anniversery…

  12. Dear Parthapratim,

    that is wonderful. I have only heard a little snippet of that performance, and I thought it one of the most sublime pieces of music I have had the pleasure of listening. I really can’t wait to heart it in its entirity, thank you so much.

  13. Rageshri by Kishori Amonkar…

  27. hi
    good evening
    myself ashish paliwal from tanodia
    at present i am living in gwalior
    its nice to say that still , in gwalior , the classical music is going on, but when compared to past it is a very poor condition , in the past at very occassions one may hear classical progs. but the condition is not the same now.

    anyway, i came to know about your site while searching,
    i am simply giving a suggestion, offcourse , it contains a precise request , that there is one great artist , with good respect , living in gwalior [ -i will give the postal address later on -]
    His name is Dr.Ishwar Chandra Karkare,very famous personality in gwalior, i think , the only representative of hindustani classica vocal , in gwalior.[at present]
    i heared him in TANSEN sangeet mahasamaroh , wayback in 2002.
    and then i got oppurtunity to hear him once again , in Srimant MADHAV RAO SCINDIA kala rang manch -dec.2003.
    he always give splendid performance.

    anyway/ its upon u to approach him.

    his postal add;-
    satguru sadan
    Ramchandra Karkare Road,
    Chhatri Bazaar,
    Lashkar [west]

    Ashish Paliwal
    Paliwal group of Companies
