'Kishori Amonkar' is a gifted 'Indian Classical Singer' who has a great talent absorbed through her mother from the years of vigorous practice. In this particular live album recorded Live At Kensington Town Hall, London On 9th April, 2000, she rendered 'Raga Bhimpalai', A Late Afternoon Raga (Belongs to Thaat Kafi) in its entirety in a detailed Khayal style mesmerizing the audience with her great command on the Raga. The performance can be divided into three parts basically, starts with a Short Alap and then proceeds to a hour long set in Moderate (Vilambit) 16 beat Teentaal. The performance concludes unusually set in 12 Beat faster Ektaal than the usuall 6 beat faster Teentaal. IMHO, Another Outstanding performance which I proudly presenting you to enjoy. Heartily Recommended.
