Pt. Venkatesh Kumar: a profile

Arunabha Deb’s profile is nice, and it captures the same feeling that we had when we listened to him first a couple of years ago:

First-time listeners share a common confusion: a man in his fifties, singing as well as any other reigning maestro of the day, but relatively unknown. Why hadn’t they heard him as an upcoming star?

Take a look!

    Some of his live performances of ragas shuddh kalyan, multani, Ahir Bhairav etc. are available on YouTube. Worth listening (and watching)!

    Guru, Pt Venkatesh Kumar is well known here in Bangalore. He is an outstanding musician and do not miss if you get a chance to listen to him. Two of his concerts are scheduled in Bangalore over next one month and I should be listening to him again, soon.

      Dear Jayan:

      I heard Pt. Venkatesh Kumar live (and for the first time ever) sometime in 2009. Ever since I am a great fan. However, here we don’t get to see his concerts, or, if they are there, I am not plugged in to the system to come to know of the same. So, I am restricted to CDs, computer and mp3s. Have fun and share your thoughts on the concerts in your blog.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to
    be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    This patient is hard to cure of superficial manifestations because the root of
    his condition is this deeply rooted miasma and as soon as one symptom
    is gone another pops up. And when you arrive, you don’t need to travel again for your honeymoon, as you are already in paradise.
    While you do want to have an elegant wedding, it doesn have to cost a fortune.
