About The Audio CD

The performances of legends are eternal. Some of these make an indelible mark and become timeless. These masterpieces are then recognized as ‘Hits’. And we at Saregama have been extremely fortunate to be their custodians. All these artistes have been associated with us since the inception of their careers. We have recorded them during the peak of their careers and have preserved their art form from evanescence and have been releasing them over time to meet the demand from true connoisseurs of music. The great works of these maestros continue to be a source of inspiration to the future generations.

 

About The Artiste

Girijadevi is a doyen of the Banaras gharana. She was trained by Sarjuprasad Misra and Shrichand Mishra, first in Khayal and later in Thumri. Devi made her public debut at the age of 20 on All India Radio, Allahabad.

She helped elevate the profile of thumri. And sang a variety of other styles, including Khayal, dhrupad, folk music and tappa. A recipient of the Padmashree and the Padma Bhushan from the President of India, she had been honored by all the music academies of the states. The coveted title of ‘Sangit Shiromani’ by the Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad was also bestowed upon her. In her musical career spanning over four decades, Girijadevi performed across the globe besides at all prestigious music conferences in India.

Teaching at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy from his inception in the early ‘90s, Devi served as guru for many students, including Dalia Rahut, Jayita Pandey and Satyanarayan Misra, the son of her own guru, Pandit Sarju Prasad. Leaving the school after 12 years, she returned to Varanasi, where she became a visiting professor at Banaras Hindu University.

 

About The Music

The album opens with evening raga Yaman. This is followed by Thumri in the night raga Mishra Tilang. The highlight of the selection in this CD is the fact that 6 hints tracks have never been released on CD format. Initially these were released on Extended Play Record. These various colorful tracks consists of 2 Dadras. Hori, Chaiti, Jhoola and Purbi. Then we have presented traditional Guru Nanak Bhajan. The album concludes with the ever-green ‘Babul Mora’ in Raga Bhairavi. A treat to the music connoisseur.
