ravishankarA truly superb Lalit by Ravi Shankar, in which panditji plays alap and jod. This is an LP record, dated 1967, (EMI - ODEON - ASD-2341).

In this recording, Shankarji's jod is so perfect that it could well serve as a model, so orthodox it is.

delaigueNicolas Delaigue is a gifted french sitar player. He has been my student for a number of years. You may have watched, on my old site, a small video excerpt in which he was playing a Bhairavi alap.

Here are two tracks of his first CD recording which you may get from him. He develops alap, jod and jhala in rag Ahir Bhairav.

Annapurna DeviWas the daughter of Allaudin Khan and ex-wife of Ravi Shankar. She is a wonderful sitar and surbahar player and has taught Hari Prasd Chaurasia. Unfortunately for us, in her own right, she retired from worldy affairs and never recorded any LPs. These are rare recordings.
