A rare and enjoyable exploration of raga Kalyani / Yaman by two of the most revered masters in their respective fields: Mysore Doreswamy Iyengar (1920-1997) & Ali Akbar Khan (1922-2009).
This recording was brought to our attention by S. Gopalakrishnan (Programming Head, Radio Mango UAE operations, Dubai):
I don’t have words to thank Jenny Bharadwaj for uploading a 50 year old recording of an amazing Jugalbandi by Ustad Ali Akbar Khan (Hindustani- Sarod) and Mysore Doraiswamy Iyengar (Carnatic- Veena). Bharadwaj comments on details of the recording as:
“This was a private concert held at the residence of Shivram Ubhaykar in Bangalore during 1962 / 1963.
The percussionists that day were Vidwan Ramaiah MS on the Mridangam and
Pandit Chatur Lal on the Tabla.
Kaapi (the Carnatic raaga) was played in the second half of the concert. I do not have the recording of the second half of the concert. Maybe it is with one of Shivram Ubhaykar’s relatives”
