restocked: "One of the greatest Indian classical vocalists of all time. Kesarbia Kerkar rose up from the bottom of the cast system in India to become one of the countries most respected vocalists. These recordings from 1947 - 1953 are beautiful ragas not to be missed. First LP issue of her material to be available in the US. A real treasure for fans of our Abdul Karim Khan and Pandit Pran Nath releases.
Beautiful detailed liner notes by Ian Nagoski complete with photographs and sacred Tantra art. Old school "tip on" cover. A co-release with Canary records."
Starting from humble beginnings, Kesarbai Kerkar became of one the biggest names of Indian classical singers. This collection of 40's and 50's ragas are simply sublime. The vocal control is mind blowing, creating haunting yet beautiful tones that at times sound inhuman and at others are truly entrancing and mystical. Backed by sarangi, harmonium and tabla, Kesarbai Kerker creates spiritually infused music that is utterly mesmerizing. This lp comes with a color booklet of translations of the ragas and a detailed history of this sincerely gifted vocalist. Recommended
