The wonderful restraint of the Younger Dagars
Indian music lover | Portland, Oregon | 08/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As in everything by the Younger Dagars that I have heard, there is a wonderful restraint in this rendition of Raga Multani. The music is revealed in an unhurried, controlled manner that borders on the minimalist tendencies of some modern western composers, such as Morton Feldman. What I like about the Younger Dagars recordings as opposed to those of their older brothers (Aminuddin and Moinuddin) is that they took advantage of more modern recording technology to reveal the subtle vocal shadings that make this a performance of Dhrupad at its most pure."
Raga Multani - in the Dagar tradition
Aditya Vedula | Princeton, NJ United States | 03/17/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Dagar brothers perform a full rendition of the Raga Multani here with an extensive Alaap, a Dhrupad and a Dhamaar. The Raga Multani is said to be a speciality of the Dagar family and it is easy to see why. Raga Multani has a certain restless feeling to it that only comes out in a full Dhrupad Alaap in the hands of masters like the Dagar brothers - no prolonged rambling Khyals here. There is also a recording of this same Dhrupad with Alaap on Cello by Nancy Lesh who studied Dhrupad from the Dagar Family."

"The important information is that Dagar brothers have nothing to do with the current album. It is misleading and the two attached reviews don't help to dispel the myth.

I found the album an average one, my frustration could contribute to a lesser score."
