Abhay Narayan Mallick - Gauhar - The Pearl of Darbhanga Dhrupad - Cassette published in India in 1998






Addition on 21st of June 2017:
A friend made the following remark:
"I think there is some discrepancy between the music and what is stated in the cover which was included, and I thought you might be interested to know. The cover said there were three tracks Jaijaiwanti, Desh & Malkauns. The download from your blog does indeed have three tracks, but in fact tracks 1 & 2 are the same music, track 1 fades out, and track 2 fades in, at almost the same place (so easy to splice together). They are both Jaijaiwanti. The third track is Desh and there is no Malkauns. I suppose this is a problem with the original tape, as the tracks are exactly the same on MusicIndiaOnline."
Thank you very much. I agree completely. So the second track is the continuation of the Raga Jaijaiwanti on the first side.

Thank you for this!

I see that Pt Abhay Narayan Mallick is still active -- he had a concert in Delhi in April of this year.
