Any recordings of alhaiya bilawal out there?

Postby CheesecakeTomek » Wed Nov 14, 2012 10:06 pm

Greetings everyone,

I have been hoping for some time to come across a recording of a dhrupad rendition of Alhaiya Bilawal, to no avail! I'm hoping someone here knows of one floating around. Could it be that this raga is not in the common repertoire for dhrupad singers/veena player?

Many thanks,
Tomek

I have one 45 minutes rendition of Alaap and Jod on rudra Veena some where. I will try to search for it and upload. There are many dhrupad and dhamar compositions on various prakars of Bilawal in Dhrupad tradition including Alahiya, Kukubh, Devgiri, Yamani.

My teacher, Peter Row, has an alap/jor/jhalla on rudra vin at his site.

www.peterrow.com

It is the 4th raga. There is a little cylinder shaped control with a left/right arrow. You can scroll through the ragas with it.

Finally listened to Peter Row's recording and enjoyed it very much. I was wondering what is meant by "Tonk Jhalla." In other recordings he only specifies "Jhalla," so I am wondering if there is something stylistically specific in what he is playing in the Alhaiya Bilawal recording?

Thanks,
Tomek

Tomek, in this case it is a jhalla that uses the single chikari stroke. Where x=chikari it would be the xddd xddd type.

So it is the opposite of "seeda jhalla" (spelling?) which would be dxxx dxxx.

Aha, gotcha. I had a thought that that may be it, as I noticed that he was using that bol throughout. However, I did not know the terminology for them, so I wasn't sure. Thanks for clearing that up!

Sorry I don't have any specific information, but I can confirm that there is an old recording of Pdt. Abhay Narayan Mullick singing the dhrupad, "pratah kala nandalal" in Chautal. It was on cassette tape, and I don't know of any CD commercially available. I hope this helps.
