About The Audio CD

The Great Heritage Series
The Vedas, one of the oldest Indian Scriptures have been the seat of Indian Classical Music. Indian Classical Music is also said to have been influenced by Indian folk music. Being both, elaborate and highly expressive, Indian Classical Music has withstood the onslaught of time and various cultures. The pages of History also indicate the influence of Persian music on Hindustani Classical Music. Based melodically on Ragas and rhythmically on Talas, this rich legacy lays emphasis on exploring the ragas and expounding the finer nuances of the same.

The proud history of Saregama stretches back over a century to 1901. Formerly known as the Gramophone Company of India Ltd. And more popularly as HMV (His Master’s Voice), Saregama was established as the first overseas Indian Branch of Electrical and Musical Industries Limited (EMI), London. From producing the first song recorded in India in 1902 by the star of yesteryears, Gauhar Jan, today Saregama has evolved into one of India’s premier entertainment content companies. Saregama India Ltd. Is the custodian of over half of all the music ever recorded in India. Saregama has the largest music archive-and catalogue-in India.

Each of the artistes featured in this series is a legend and has contributed greatly to putting Indian Classical Music on the global map. Having imbibed musical knowledge in the Guru – Shishya parampara, they continued the tradition with their students too, thus building on the rich cultural heritage, generation after generation.

In this exclusive series aptly named ‘The Great Heritage Series’, in its own inimitable style, Saregama brings together the wealth of Indian Classical Music, the artistes’ legacy and its own brand equity built over the years.

About The Artiste

Ustad Amir Khan
Born into a family of musicians, Ustad Amir Khan was initiated into music by his father Shahmir Khan, a sarangi player. Amir Khan was exposed at an early age to many different styles, since just about every musician who visited Indore would come to their house, and there would be mehfils at their place on a regular basis. Influenced by this exposure, Amir Khan developed his own singing style blending the spiritual flavor and grandeur of Dhrupad with the ornamentation of Khayal. Thus came into being the Indore Gharana. His lack of showmanship was more than made up for by his command over the style and understated elegance combinced with his undying passion. The richness of his voice continues to enthrall listeners not just in his classical endeavors but also some of the popular songs from old Hindi film classics. Having been bestowed by the Padma Bhushan and the Sangeet Natak Academy awards, Amir Khansaheb also has to his credit a number of recordings.

About The Music

In this three CD-pack the opening track of CD 1 is a morning melody in Raag Bilaskhani Todi. This is followed by the twilight melody in Raga Marwa. Ustad Amir Khansaheb’s rendition of this raga has been universally acclaimed to be his best! The CD concludes with a devotional piece in Raga Hansadhwani which builds to a crescendo with a powerful Tarana.
CD 2 and CD 3 are recordings of live concerts.
CD 2 begins with 2 morning melodies in Raga Bairagi and Raga Charukesi. This is followed by a twilight melody in Raga Puriya. The CD concludes with a night melody in Raga Shudh Kalyan. The tracks in this CD are all being released in CD format for the first time.
Chandani Kedar is a rare raga and forms the opening melody for CD 3. This is followed by a night melody in Raga Madhukauns.
The choicest of ragas by the legend Ustad Amir Khan have been compiled together in this special series, thus ensuring the eternal popularity of this evergreen artiste.

Testimonials
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
