A picture of Ustad Alladiya Khan, the establisher of this gharana.
The gharan established by Ustad Alladiya Khan has given indian classical world a battery of accomplished artists - Kesarbai Kerkar, Mogubai Kurdikar, Dhondu Tai Kulkarni, Kishori Amonkar, Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande etc.
Here are a few ragas sung by stalwarts from Jaipur Atrauli Gharana which I like the most: Raga Bageshri by Kishori Amonkar Bada Khyal is the tradition Kaun Gat Bhayi set to madhyalaya teental
Chota Khyal is Aeri Maai Sajan Nahi Aaye set to madhyalaya Addha, a specialty of Tai.
Although the feeling of sadness and separation is the signature of Bageshree and is very well presented in this repertoire, this Bageshree presents a new face of Bageshree. The harkats, refrains are just heavenly. No one could have thought of such beautiful permutations of Bageshree swaras. I am speechless after listening to this perfection. Notice how within the first 2 minutes (with only her swarmandal playing for more than 30 seconds), this doyenne of classical music sets up the mood of Bageshri. This Bageshri is sung by younger Kishori Tai, somewhere around when she made swarmandal her accompaniment.
