[1968┬ĚCEX13]

Karnatic Harmonium

The wonderful harmonium vidwan Muthunathesa Bhagvatar was also touring with Swamy Haridhos. This was recorded at the house of violin K. Shivakumar with him and my guru P.S. Devarajan in a very informal setting. I think the combination of harmonium and violin makes for a great sound.

An extremely rare recording of Karnatic classical music on harmonium with the great Muthunathesa Bhagvatar accompanied on violin by a young K. Shivakumar and by Mridangam Vidwan P.S. Devarajan. This is a lossless mp3 album, very unique, lovely and special sounding Karnatic classical music, recorded more than 40 years back.
