From the CD Kishori Amonkar

Kishori Amonkar is unquestionably the most versatile and popular woman vocalist of the present generation. Kishori’s is the kind of music that casts its magic spell over her listeners as few others can. Kishori Amonkar also enjoys the singular distinction as the first woman pioneer of the avant garde movement in Hindustani music. And that makes her a controversial exponent of the musical tradition of North India.

Daughter and disciple of the great Mogubai Kurdikar, the doyenne of the Atrauli-Jaipur gharana, it is natural that music to her is a maternal inheritance. But her genius has sought to overshadow the blue-blooded gharana, pioneered by her mother’s mentor, Ustad Alladiya Khan. Thereby, she has widened her horizons of musical expression and discovered “fresh fields and pastures new”, to the perennial delight and fulfillment of millions of her fans.

The Music

Raga Jaunpuri: This is a raga, conventionally rendered in the later hours of the morning. It has a caressive, persuasive quality, with an undertone of melancholic yearning caused by separation. This mood is captured and projected so eloquently by the artiste.

Technically, Jaunpuri is a shadava-sampurna raga, in which gandhar is omitted from its aroha. One opinion regards dhaivat and gandhar as its vadi and samvadi swaras. Another view is that nishad and gandhar are, respectively, its vadi and samvadi swaras. Be that as it may, this in no way affects the innate emotional content of the melody.

The artiste begins her presentation with a slow-tempo depiction, set to teentaal (16 and appeal of its own, which has swayed the emotions of listeners down the centuries. It has an odava (pentatonic) build-up, in which madhyam and nishad are completely to convey the mood of the hour - one of anticipation, not unmixed with a tinge of suspense. The raga takes gandhar and dhaivat as its vadi and samvadi swaras. The two-tier unfolding presented here, it begins with a slow-tempo composition, followed by a faster one, both set to teentaal (16 matras).

Raga Pat-Bihag: This is one of the most intricate and complex melodies to be found in the wide and varied raga repertory of North India. The result is that few artistes are seen to have made an attempt to understand and interpret it. Those who have done so have given variations that are as bewildering as they are confusing.

Pat-Bihag is believed to be a fusion of many melodies and there is no unanimity about its vadi and samvadi swaras. The version, heard here, makes use of both komal and shudh variations of gandhar as well as nishad, while the remaining swaras are shudh. The unfolding, rendered in the madhyalaya, set to teentaal, is a composition that is touching, musically as well as lyrically.

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.
