Gharanon Ki Gaiki - Vol. 9 - Fateh Ali Khan - Vol. 1 - Patiala Gharana


Next we have three cassettes by the great, very charismatic Patiala singer Ustad Fateh Ali Khan. I'm personally very fond of him and his emotionally charged voice. For me it is like old vine: makes you drunk. Such beautiful recordings. There have been quite a number of CDs by him, some still available (for example from: info@raga-maqam-dastgah.com).
See here our earlier post of a cassette by him.

Wow, this is fantastic! I have one CD of his, where his voice is largely drowned out by the tanpura and harmonium, but I've been curious for more. This is really exceptional -- fantastic voice, artistry, and recording quality.
