Indian Classical Music is a river and hundreds of musicians are springs which keep on rejuvenating it. The famous musicians of India are world known today and enjoy a huge following across the globe.
But, just publicity is not the metric; some musicians are beyond fame, awards etc. This gallery is a collection of articles, reviews, insights, concert reviews of all such musicians which are remarkable- they might be famous or not, but they deserve fame as the task they have done is humongous.
Please select any of the artist from the list below to read more articles about him and his music.
Pt. Shivkumar Sharma
For me, Pt. Shivkumar Sharma is none less than a god. Pt. Shivkumar Sharma and his music have been accompanying me on my inner journey. Meditative is his music and so is he when he is performing on the stage. A man with absolute devotion towards his art, Pt. Shivkumar Sharma stands as the tallest peak in the world of Indian Classical Music.
His one stroke is enough to break the web of thoughts and give you pure bliss of meditation and thoughtlessness..
Pt. Hariprasad Chauraisa is probably best musician for you if you are an organizer! Though his fame touches the ultimate levels, he is always like Lord Krishna- humble, loving yet mischievous. His flute echoes the eternal sound of the divine. He is great musician but at the same time, he is a Guru, a master for his hundreds of disciples.
Pt. Mukul Shivputra, the one who is famous for his temper and his whimsical nature, is probably the best vocalist alive today. I have a small section here on this web site, which has around 6 articles on this maestro. The section contains concert reviews, reviews of his recordings and some afterthoughts.
The section will be updated as the things evolve!
Silent is his music and saintly his nature. He is disciple of Guruma Annapurna Devi, the living goddess. Pt. Nityanand Haldipur is artist in true sense. Music leads to divine and performance to spiritual perfection. In his music, he is absent and god is present.
I know, many listeners complain that his music is boring. Many of them say that it is monotonous. I find it to be eternal and timeless. It makes one thoughtless. We keep on meeting him, quite often. After meeting him, I realize, that true knowledge makes one humble. Pt. Nityanand Haldipur is standing right with the Himalaya of knowledge; still he is as light as a leaf- floating on divine wind
