About the CD

One of the brightest stars in the firmament of Indian classical music, Kumar Gandharva was a vocalist known for his revolutionary spirit. He was a path breaker and trendsetter in many spheres of classical music.

Kumar Gandharva was born on 8 April, 1924 at Sulebhavi village, about 18 kilometers away from Belgaun Karnataka. He was a child prodigy and could exactly reproduce the recorded compositions of Ustad Abdul Karim Khan, Ustad Faiyaz Khan, Pandit Omkar Nath Thakur, Sawai Gandharva, Kesar Bai Kerkar and many others. Perceiving his talent, Professor Deodhar took his under his tutelage and trained him in classical vocal music for eleven years.

Although connected with the Gwalior gharna, Kumar Gandharva had his own distinctive style of singing. Instead of following a traditional gharana, which he found restrictive, he developed his own style, which was a blend of classical and folk music. His music was not born out of riyaz but blossomed out of his own introspection and musical meditation. Whatever composition he sang, he never repeated himself-whether it was a classical Bandish, Bhajan or a folk song. While performing, he would be fully involved in the act of creation and would make his listeners share the same agony and ecstasy of creation that he himself experienced. He also composed “Geet Hemant, Geet Vasant, Triveni, Rituraj Mehfil, Tambe Geet Rajani and Hori”, which were instant hits.

A recipient of a fellowship from the Sangeet Natak Academy, Kumar Gandharva was honoured with the Padma Bhushan and D. Litt, from the Vikram University. There were many institutions, which honoured him and in turn would get honoured themselves.

This album brings out the unforgettable music of the legend, who is truly the ‘Last Word’ in Hindustani vocal classical music.

‘The Last Word’ is an exclusive series of 6 CDs, which signify ‘6 unparalleled names in the field of Classical music.’ This series presents 6 stalwarts whose names are synonymous with the respective instruments they play or they are known as the ultimate names in their respective arena of vocal music.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
