Gharanon Ki Gaiki - Schools of Music - Set of 20 cassettes published in 1978 in Pakistan


Over the next couple of weeks we will post the 20 cassettes from this wonderful box devoted to the vocal Gharanas existing in Pakistan. Many of the singers were amongst the greatest of their times, though some were hardly known outside some circles of connoisseurs. The singers were accompanied by equally great Sarangi and Tabla players. Just wonderful. I bought this box in the early 1980s in a Pakistani record shop in Southall near London.

I think this cassette is the same as the vol.1 cd from 5cd's 'The Legendary Salamat Ali Khan' by EMI
On the cd cover there is not any information about sarangi and tabla player or place of recoding. Good to see this information on the cassette cover.

Yes, that's right. The first 4 CDs are identical with the 4 cassettes by Salamat Ali Khan from this box here. The 5th CD contains Thumries, also originally published as a cassette.
