Pt. Pushparaj Koshti during Dhrupad Festival 2013

Post by Surbaharplayer » Tue May 28, 2013 9:39 pm

I've uploaded a video of the performance of Pt. Pushparaj Koshti from the Dutch Dhrupad Festival 2013. He played Raga Kafi (with a stunningly beautiful compostion in dhamar, which starts at the 27.00 mark).

Enjoy!

thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you

I find Pt. Koshti's playing to be absolutely mesmerizing, and dhrupad renditions of Kafi seem to be a bit rare! This performance is a gift, thank you for sharing it.

So grateful to you for this upload! He seems to play more Ragas that dont get the 'full dhrupad' treatment such as Kafi, Basant, Des, Sarang, i've never heard a dhrupad version of any of these except his. Such a heavenly maestro, Koshti never disappoints.
