Extraits video d'un documentaire (09:27) pour Antenne2 de Georges Luneau datant, je crois, de 1979, où je suis interviewé et où on me voit en train de faire des gammes à Bénarès.

Video excerpts of a french TV documentary (09:27), produced by Georges Luneau, and shot, I think, in 1979, where I am interviewed and where you can see me playing scales in Varanasi. Sorry, the interview is in french.

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.

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi est décédé hier, lundi 24 janvier 2011, à l'âge de 89 ans, dans un hôpital de Pune, en Inde. Né le 4 février 1922, élève de Sawai Gandharva, il était le principal représentant de la Kirana Gharana et pour moi, le plus grand chanteur vivant de l'Inde d'aujourd'hui. Son décès est une très grande perte pour la Musique.

Vous pouvez écouter des enregistrements audio ainsi que des vidéos de Panditji sur le site.

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi passed away yesterday, on january 24, 2011, at the age of 89, in a Pune hospital, India. Born on february 4, 1922, he had been the pupil of late Sawai Gandharva, and Bhimsenji was the main exponent of Kirana Gharana. For me, he was the best living singer of Hindustani Rag Sangeet. His demise is a really huge loss for Music.
