I recently came across a few blogs that I would like to mention. They both feature rare recordings which are pretty hard to find anywhere else.
The first one is Oriental-Traditional-Music. There are some real gems available on this site from all across the Middle East and Asia. However, the posts that I found the most interesting are the following:
This guy is a really innovative player, definitely recommended.
The Bhairavi on this recording is mind blowing.
I've mentioned this a few times in my last posts. This is one of the best recordings of
sitar that I've ever heard, not in terms of quality but the playing is amazing. Check out
the raga kirwani.
More from Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan. A lovely raga Multani.
The other blog I would like to mention is La Logique Interne. I don't speak French at all but most of the text makes sense through google translate.
More from Mohammed Sharif Khan Poonchwala.
Over a gigabyte of Nikhil Banerjee recordings. They vary in quality but are all
amazing in terms of playing. Definitely worth the downloads.
Lastly, here's a video of a song that I can't stop listening to. It is probably my favourite thing that Ravi Shankar has done (apart from Passages with Philip Glass).
