Amigo 906 Raga Gangeyabushan
2. Jor, Jhala
In 1968 Ustad did his first recording on his giant been, the rudra veena that he had designed. The recording was done in a private flat in Chembur on a quiet morning and was later released on a french label, B.A.M. with the name Raga Mangebushan. It is since long out of print. That morning Ustad did two takes of the same raga and we had considerable difficulties to choose which one to release since they were equally good and we finally settled on the first take. Ustad's son Bahauddin Dagar has since corrected the name of the raga to Gangeyabushan. Here is the second take from that very morning and I am sure that the lucky few who have both recording will find a comparison very rewarding.
