Darbhanga & Dagar - Various Artists - Dhrupad Series


Here another private CD with Abhay Narayan Mallik and some artists of the Dagarvani. Amongst the recordings on this CD is an outstanding Alap by Ustad Hussainuddin Dagar (Pt. Tansen Pandey) (1909-1963), next to Rahimuddin Khan Dagar the only artist of the 18th generation of the Dagars, by whom recordings exist. Ustad Hussainuddin Dagar was one of the four sons of Ustad Allahbande Khan (1845-1927) and the father of Ustad Sayeeduddin Dagar.
"Tansen Pande (1908-1963) was born Hussainuddin Khan, the fourth son of Allabande Khan. While most of the members of the Dagar musical family acknowledge their Hindu antecedents, Tansen Pande formally chose to revert to his ancestor’s faith around 1947. He ranks as one of the great Dhrupadiyas of the 20th century." From http://www.parrikar.org/vpl/?page_id=618
There exist a couple of performences by him on YouTube.
I received these recordings including the covers from an Indian collector based in the US. Many many thanks to him for his kindness to share these.
