Pandit of Bhajans: Kumar Gandharva

Pandit Kumar Gandharva

Pandit Kumar Gandharva

Pandit Kumar Gandharva was an amazing singer of Indian classical and devotional music. I especially like his bhajans, which this collection is full of (including a few very early recordings when the maestro was still but a lad).

For those who are not familiar with this man, his life and musical style then I suggest you check out the passionate and bursting website set up by a fan here.

I am under the weather in Delhi. Grumpy and annoyed that I am unable to fully enjoy my days and evenings here. Gandharvaji’s lilting, somewhat fragile voice gives me some comfort, for which I am very grateful.
