About the CD

The Jugalbandi as it is known today is not a traditional performance style in Indian Music. Jugal gaan was an occasional occurrence where two students of the same guru would come together to present a joint concert where the ideations would inevitably be highly concomitant between the performers. At the other extreme was the concept of a musical duel where the elements of challenge one upmanship and competition were basic.

The modern day Jugalbandi is a beautiful idea which is born out of mutual respect and report between two independent artistes. Thus the coming together of two titans on one stage often without preparation becomes a rare occasion to see how contrasting styles merge with each other. The concepts remain a tribute to the solidity of the canons of Indian classical music which enables two virtual strangers to converse with such unerring precision and brilliance.

While Jugalbandies between instrumentalists have been popular for decades the vocal instrumental jugalbandi is a novelty. Thus the meeting of Vidushi Kishori Amonkar and Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia in a jugalbandi acquires a special significance. The artistes come from diverse background. Yet the synergy in ethos is striking.

The magnetic command over sur the dhrupad and phrasing the rippling taans and above all the intense level of feeling are common to both these great luminaries. They present the raga Bhoop commencing with an unconventional free style alaapa in akara moving on to a vilambit khayal a drut khayal and finally a tarana.

About the Artiste

Vidushi Kishori Amonkar
Vidushi Kishori Amonkar is unquestionably the most versatile and popular woman vocalist of the present generation. Kishori Amonkar’s style of music casts its magic spell over her listeners as few other can. Kishori Amonkar also enjoys the singular distinction as the first woman pioneer of 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 vocal maestro 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 the mother mentor Ustad Alladiya khan. Thereby she has widened her horizons of musical expression and discovered” fresh and pastures new” to the perennial delight and fulfillment of millions of her fans.

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia
Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, is living legend in the realm of Indian Raga Sangeet, has earned the distinction of creative a special stylistic niche for an instrument which is almost a symbol of India mythology and heritage the flute. To him goes to credit of introducing Dhrupad ang alaapchari (improvisation on the raga independent of any composition) and gatkari (composition based improvisation in the style of plucked string instrument like the sitar and sarod) into the baaj (style) of classical flute, which has earlier been confined to the idiom of vocal music alone. This effort has spanned the areas of music motifs and ideation on one hand and instrumental technique on the other.

The qualities in Chaurasia music and technique which finally succeed in drawing those rapt listeners by the millions the world over are an amalgam of a level of tunefulness which is spiritual in its effect an intensity of feeling the swara which is soul stirring and precision which can keep the listener mind a state of perfect repose.

Chaurasia owes the depth of his perceptions into music to his gurus Smt. Annapurna Devi and earlier Pt. Rajaram and Pt. Bholanath.

A unique facet of Hariprasad Chaurasia evolution as a musician has been his singular ability to delve into a rich variety of genres form and styles from folk music to film and contemporary music.
