Bits and Bobs (downloads)

Sorry for not posting for a while, I've been a bit busy with organising a house move and some other stuff that seems to be unbelievably time consuming.

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).

Sorry to hear that Daniel. I don't know what to suggest. The images aren't important in this post, just go to the links I've given for the downloads.

Based on my own experiences I am going to make five recommendations that
I wish someone had made to me to help take the fear out of fitness.
You have to find a way to take the tips you learn and make maximum use of them.

Nothing is more motivating than seeing physical proof of results.

Of course, one of the reasons why this area of
Ohio has remained so persistently branded as a pocket
of joblessness is its failure to recover from the death of the steel industry and also
because of automotive production lines outsourced to foreign lands.

I also have to wonder if the evening news shows are more interested in ratings or in reporting the real news.
