Aftab Datta’s Summer Collection

Dear Visitors,

Aftab tried twice to send me all this music online through sendspace, and each time I got around to downloading, it would no longer be available. This time he has gone a step further and done it again: bypassing my personal inertia, he has singlehandedly edited, converted, named, tagged and uploaded, not to mention shared all these audio files with everyone. One could safely assume that he is a very motivated man.

Thank you for your patience and special interest in music on this website!

  1. I am indeed thankful to you for sending me this wonderful collection. But when I try to play one of these it runs only for a minute. Do I need to subscribe in any other manner to be entitled to listen fully?

  4. All:
    We are all happy to share these pieces.
    If anybody has any problems downloading pieces please let Taimur or I know (and list the track)
    I would like to thank the large group of fellow listeners for all of the music which has been circulating these days… rare and beautiful music-old and new from our collective archives!
    I cant list them all but Dr. Ashfaq Khan has done a tremendous job of selflessly posing some of the rarest and beautiful gems here:

    1. Hi,

      I am prabir bagchi from calcutta. though i haven’t wrote you before but hope you will guide me regarding my queries. Firstly i must express my gratitude from the music lovers again and again for the task you have chosen. Now, just to add that i also have some collection of records (78rpm and others also).. i can share it with all of you. so please guide how to do that.

  5. Wow! This is a musical feast!! However, Sharafat Husain Khan sahab’s Chhayanat is not downloading properly. Downloadable data is only 1.45 M, plays for 2 minutes, but the file info says it is 24 minutes long. Probably the upload was interrupted and broken. Please have a look.

    Thanks

  6. Dear Aftabji
    Veritable treasure of some rare melodies! I particularly liked ragas hussaini todi & kafi kanada.Do u have the rendering of Ustad faitaz khan sab of Hussaini todi.Tks Regards

  7. Words are not enough to thank Aftabji’s efforts to share his invaluable collection with everyone. our music is greater than any one of us and by sharing it, enjoying it and talking about it , people can come together in friendship.
    The entire website of sarangi.info is amazing. For music lovers its out of this world ! For those wanting to listen to the great masters of a bygone era and to connect with the MIJAZ of those times – its an opportunity just not to be missed!
    We are fast losing that MIJAZ and the great standards of musicianship – we should
    not let that happen.

  8. Thanks a lot, Aftab!! That’s a great music treat. The Omkarnath Thakur raag Hussaini Kanada seems to be incomplete similar to Sharafat – Chayanat.

  15. Dear Aftabji,

    Thanks for the wonderful treasure. A few comments. I believe the Bageshree by Roshanaara begum is actually by Hirabai Barodekar.

    Uday

  16. I found problems in more tracks
    1. Gopeshwar Bandyopadhya
    2. Bade Ghulam Kedar, after downloading 94 MB, I discovered that only 5:50 m is playable while rest of the data is junk. Great disappointment.

    Please correct these problems if possible.

    Thanks

  17. Mr. C Parthapratim,

    Thank you for pointing out the corrupted files.

    Even so, your “Great disappointment.” impels me to beg a new lease on life while inquiring as to whether you are nurturally discourteous, genetically silly, or both?

  18. Dear C Parthapratim:
    Thank you for pointing out the files which need to be fixed on the back-end.
    If I may request, again…once you find an error in the system truncating a particular file, please notify me, aftabdatta@gmail.com – I am taking note on all the tracks which need to be fixed this weekend.
    Again, just copy the above email, paste in the “to” area of an email message, and put the track name in the text, then hit “send”, to me. These problems will be fixed.
    Thank you,
    Aftab

  19. @ Mr. Aftab, surely I’ll let you know personally if I find one. However, I don’t think I am downloading anything more from this site.
    @ Mr. Taimur: Ignored ur insightful mail.

    C Parthapratim

  20. The Megh attributed to Shareef Khan Sahib is falsely attributed to him. It is not his style .Just compare it with the Kafi which has also been uploaded in this collection. It is a disservice to him to claim that he played this particular Megh. His notes were perfect, whereas the player is besura quite frequently. Who told you that it is Shareef Khan? Please remove it from the site.

    Also, I didn’t hear any Vichitarvina in the Salagvarali Todi “duet ” with the flautist Saeen Ditta Qadri ( One can really hear a different Re – lower than komal, which is quite amazing for North Indian music).

    We are grateful to you for the time and material resources which you must have invested in making available this music. We all do ourselves a favour in downloading from this site .

    Kind regards,
    Hassan Azad

  21. @Hassan Azad
    Thank you for the comment. The Megh track is from a record with his likeness on the cover and his name on it. I think you can hear his voice in the beginning, too.
    As for the bansuri jugalbandi, that label will be corrected.
    Thank you for the kind words at the end of you comment.
    Regards,
    Aftab

  22. It is not Ustad Sharif Khan’s voice. Also, the playing is so much out of tune that the probability that it is Ustad Shareef Khan is nil. Just compare it with the Kafi. That isa a different world altogether. Don’t you hear it yourself?

  23. Dear Aftab,
    The file of nissar hussain named as raag ‘Kalyan ka prakaar’ is raag Khem Kalyan as per my knowledge. The same bandish – ‘piharawa main sang lagi’ is sung by Ustad Sharafat Hussain Khan as well.

    Dhananjay

  24. Aftab Janab,
    I am very thankful to you for investing the time and resources to make these tracks available to us. You are doing a great job and a huge favor to music listeners.

  25. Dear brother I Listen a vedeo recorded raag megh, WAH KYAA GAAYAKI THI ME DOWN LOAD NAHI KAR PAAYA, BUT I AM HAPPY & I PRAY TO GOD FOR YOUR PROSPERITY FOR EVER. Sumer

  26. I only wish to convey my appreciation and gratitude for the efforts of Mr. Aftab Datta, Dr. Taimur, Mr. Kiyani and the other members of the team who are making such valuable contribution not only for the promotion and preservation of serious music but for the pleasure of people like me and many more. God Bless You and Good Luck.

  28. Dear Aftabji,

    There are no words to thank you for all the treasure you are making available to us!

    I am especially grateful for the Tabla recording of Allah Dhittasaheb! On other hand it was bit disappointing for not having a new recording of Amir Khan Saheb!

    I wish all the best for you & Sarangi info!

    I have only one request.
    If you kindly share some recordings of Afatabe Sitar the great the one and only legend Ustad Vilayat khan sahib then your kindness will always be remebered.
    Because, we miss his lovely recording on this site.

  34. can someone confirm whether the nissar hussain darbari on the
    http://vindia.free.fr/music/
    site is from the AIR national programme? we had made a live recording on spool of this national programme back in the 1970’s but it is damaged.

    the first part of the darbari vilambit is missing–it would be wonderful to have a complete recording. nissar hussain khan saheb was in fine form at this concert.

    vinay

  35. Ustad Z.M Dagars reocrdings were just awe-inspiring and i just couldnt believe that i found Ustadjis panchamkauns here as ihave been searching for the track for a very long time….so,thank you for sharing such wonderful pieces of musical craftmanship with everyone and i do hope thet will be much more enlightened about Hindustani classical sangeet after they have ventured about this wonderful and brilliant site………i would also like to know if could upload some tracks by Ustad Asad Ali Khan(rudra veena) and Ustad Fahimuddin Dagar and Ustad H.Sayeeduddin Dagar…if anyone can even give any link about mp3 downloads of tracks by these graet artistes then i would be grateful to him or her.

  36. Dear Aftab.A certain Mr.Bhrugu Pandya has added links of Ameer Khansahib from mediafire to your site,including puriya,malkauns etc and claiming them to be new.Let me point it out to you that this Puriya I added months ago to my Esnips folder http://www.esnips.com/holistic/user and it has been copied ditto from there.What’s his problem?

  40. Thanks a pile to Aftab Datta for the “bhaje murli man bhavra” by Nagaraj Havaldar.

    Great summer collection! Just now I wrote I could not find any in gorakh kalyan.

    Thanks a lot for wonderful work you have done for Music Lovers. This is a great collection of Maestros of all Time.

    Plz. keep us shared with such dedicated work.

    Wish you best of health & happiness

  42. Wow, this is fantastic! It’s a real treat to hear these. I’m especially interested in the dhrupad vocal and rudra veena, but there’s so much great Indian classical music here.

  43. dear aftabji

    please accept all the gratitude i can place here, for all these wonderful posts that i have just discovered.

    in case you are in a position to accept humble farmaiyishes, may i request the addition of as much music as you can find by pandit krishnarao shankar pandit and ustad amir khan sahib. any recordings by ustad abdul halim jaffar khan would also be greatly appreciated as would be those by vidushi kesarbai kerkar and pandita siddheshwari devi.

  46. Dear sir, accidentaly I found your site while trying to access profile of pt sharatchand arolkar and I must confess I am living in another world of joy happiness and above all bliss since the finding of your site.never before I was exposed to the music of stalwarts like Ustad Asique ali Khan, Ustad ghulam Hassan Shaggan and Ustad sarhang of Afganistan.a long time back as an amateuar listener I remember listening to one Afghani artist at Kanpur, which was very good,but only after visiting your site I am in a position to visualise what quality of Hindustani classical vocal music has been out of our reach just because Pakistan and India are two different countries.Any way, I am now a more satisfied rasika as I have listened this
    divine music and have come to know about these hidden treasure. Thanks a lot.

  51. I am looking for the recordings of great Ghulam abbas khan the nephew of Bade ghulam ali khan. I have his one recording of raga Gunkali in audio cassette. In my opinion he was the real successor of bade sahib.

      1. Hello Aftab bhai, I have uploaded gunkali and Megh at my mediafire account. I will upload Puriadhanasri very soon. Kindly share if you have any recording of Ghulam Abbas Khan and ustad fateh Ali Khan & amanat Ali Khan other than Ashfaque Bhais collection.

    1. Dear Abdul Fattah Sahib.I’m afraid I haven’t got the non filmi version of pyar nahi hai.Now that I know about the 1987 ptv version of FAK I’ll try to procure it from there.You mentioned in your post a Gunkali by Ghulam Abbas Khan.Could you please share it with me?I’ll be much obliged.

      Best Regards,

  54. Eid Mubarak to all the classical music lovers specially aftab Bahi, Ashfaq Bhai and Amir Shirazi. I am looking for eid gift classical music.

  55. Dear Classical Music lovers I hae downloaded Shafaqat Salamat ali khan Rageshwari from mediafire uploaded by Ashfaq Bhai. The endinig bol of tal is tit kit ta tit kit ta. The sum ta is followed by dhin. I think it is Dhamar tal. But in my mind it is incorrect by counting of 56 matras and bols. correct me if I am wrong.Very strange to listen the applause by great classical vocalist for theka. If I am wrong tell me the the tala.

  56. Ashfaq Bhai I have recorded the audio gunkali of Ghulam Abbas Khan by MP3 recorder. The quality is not as good as of audio tape. Kindly suggess me the way recording other than that. Also guide me where and how to upload it. thanks

    Abdul Fattah Dahri

    1. Janab Dahri Sahab.If you have an account at mediafire or esnips then upload it over there or in fact there are a lot of such sites like rapidshare,mega upload etc etc.You may type for eg mediafire(in my opinion the best forum)in google or any search engine and it will lead you to there webpage.Follow the instructions and you may upload whatever you want over there.
      I don’t know how you could improve the quality of your mp3,usually it should be a ditto copy of your copied track.Give it an another try.
      Regards
      AAK

  57. It very sad to listen the news that Ustad Sharafat Ali Khan Has Passed away. May Allah rest his sole in peace.

I have some other recordings of Sharaft Ali Khan, Ghulam Abbas Khan and rare Thumri Bhairvi by Ustad Fateh Ali Khan on Tala Chanchal. I will try to upload. I have very slow connection of vphone.

  65. you need to relabel the rahimuddin dagar recoridngs .the bhairavis are sanskrit shlokas.not a thumri. and the pilu item is a mirza ghalib gazal.

  66. Bahut hi qabile tareef collection hai.
    Bahut dedication hai aap me Aftab Saheb.
    Aapki ek chhoti bitiya hai.
    meri guzarish hai ke uske liye zaroor time nikala karein.
    regards.

  67. dear dr. taimur,
    may u do good works like this with more energy and may serv the music tradition for long time.
    this is nothing but result of hard work of your initiation, i also thanks Mr.aftab datta.

  68. Dear Aftab saheb,

    I’m amazed by your variety of collection and dedication towards Hindustani Classical Music.

    I’ll be greatful if you could PLEASE upload Pt. Dr. Gokulotsavji Maharaj’s “Ahir Bhairav” & “Hindol” – Rhythm House series pieces. There were 4 volumes under Rhythm House’s “Ustadi Gayaki” series of cassettes. Now, these are rare pieces and mostly unavailable.

    Another recording that I’m looking for is Prabhakar Karekar’s “Nat Bhairav” & “Shuddh Kalyan” from the Surlok cassette – Abhijaat Sangeet series # CM205.

    Please help.

  69. Going through Aftab Sb. Summer Collection,I came across Gourd Sarang. May I point out a small correction, the item is by Mr. ARIF JAFFERY. He is a dedicated researcher, musicologist holding Masters degree in classical music from Romania and a practicing flute player.He recently retired as senior executive from Pakistan Council of ARTS

    My best wishes for Saragingi.info and the whole team managing it.

  70. i live in ahmedabad from gujarat,india. i like very much sarangi. i want to learn to play on sarangi. can u give me the the information about the places in ahmedabad where i can learn to play on sarangi?

  71. God Bless you. You have done a wonderful job. I have just now download Tabla Teen Taal of Ustad Shawkat Hussain.

  72. the ‘mushtaq hussain’ bahar is really nissar hussain isnt it? the ghazal by zafar in des is just wonderful.

  73. Dear Aftab,
    The correct name of the performer of Rag Shahana is Hafeez Ahmed Khan (not Abdul Hafeez Khan). This tarana is his signature piece, I heard him singing it in 1991.
    The rubai that he sings is attributed to Rumi:
    من تو شدم تو من شدی
    من تن شدم تو جان شدی
    تا کس نگوید بعد ازین
    من دیگرم تو دیگری
    I would appreciate if someone had a better quality recording to upload.
    Thanks!
