[19]. World Music Library, KICC 5114 - Bhimsen Joshi - Hindustani Vocal Music

Monday, August 24, 2009 ·

Born in February 1922 in Gadag in the present-day Indian state of Karnataka, Bhimsen Joshi is one of the truly matchless male vocalists of Hindustani music: his performances are always a source of joy. From early in his life he was driven by music, a drive which led him to leave home quite young. After many adventures he settled down studying with Sawai Gandharva of the Kirana gharana and one of the foremost students of Abdul Karim Khan. Bhimsen Joshi has a rich and resonant voice which, while utterly classical in tone, has a warm, lived-in quality. ~ Ken Hunt, All Music Guide.
A live recording made in Tokyo in May 1985 with tanpura, tabla and vocal accompaniment with a strong devotional flavor. ~ Ken Hunt, All Music Guide.
Vocal music is concidered the highest position in the Indian traditional music scene. This is a recording of Bhimsen Joshi, a great master of classical Indian vocal music. His rich voice and technique give listeners a deeply moving experience.
