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)!

    Dear Kaustubh:

    Thanks for the comment; and, yes, that is what I am doing and enjoying!!

    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.
