About The Audio CD

The performances of legends are eternal. Some of these make an indelible mark and become timeless. These masterpieces are then recognized as ‘Hits’. And we at Saregama have been extremely fortunate to be their custodians. All these artistes have been associated with us since the inception of their careers. We have recorded them during the peak of their careers and have preserved their art form from evanescence and have been releasing them over time to meet the demand from true connoisseurs of music. The great works of these maestros continue to be a source of inspiration to the future generations.

 

About The Artiste

Girijadevi is a doyen of the Banaras gharana. She was trained by Sarjuprasad Misra and Shrichand Mishra, first in Khayal and later in Thumri. Devi made her public debut at the age of 20 on All India Radio, Allahabad.

She helped elevate the profile of thumri. And sang a variety of other styles, including Khayal, dhrupad, folk music and tappa. A recipient of the Padmashree and the Padma Bhushan from the President of India, she had been honored by all the music academies of the states. The coveted title of ‘Sangit Shiromani’ by the Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad was also bestowed upon her. In her musical career spanning over four decades, Girijadevi performed across the globe besides at all prestigious music conferences in India.

Teaching at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy from his inception in the early ‘90s, Devi served as guru for many students, including Dalia Rahut, Jayita Pandey and Satyanarayan Misra, the son of her own guru, Pandit Sarju Prasad. Leaving the school after 12 years, she returned to Varanasi, where she became a visiting professor at Banaras Hindu University.

 

About The Music

The album opens with evening raga Yaman. This is followed by Thumri in the night raga Mishra Tilang. The highlight of the selection in this CD is the fact that 6 hints tracks have never been released on CD format. Initially these were released on Extended Play Record. These various colorful tracks consists of 2 Dadras. Hori, Chaiti, Jhoola and Purbi. Then we have presented traditional Guru Nanak Bhajan. The album concludes with the ever-green ‘Babul Mora’ in Raga Bhairavi. A treat to the music connoisseur.

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.
