Collected Works

Raag Mala

This page is under construction.


Raag Mala is a set of 10 tapes. Each side is about 20 minutes long so that the whole lasts for more that 6 and a half hours!

The set contains an anthology of more than 90 common ragas performed by prominent musicians of the sub-continent belonging to various gharanas.  Each rendition is preceded by a brief description of its characteristics. The set was jointly produced by EMI Pakistan and PNCA. I bought the set from Shrimatis of California:
