Shiv Shankar Mukherjee (1928-2004) - Gouhar Bani style of Dhrupad - Raga Bhairo

Not much is known about this Dhrupad singer, except for the notes on the back side, taken from the booklet of the only commercial CD by the artist, published in 2004 by Makar Records in Paris (see below). Amongst his students are Satinath Bhattacharya & Durga Shankar Acherjee. 
I don't remember anymore if the recording is from my collection or the one of KF. Anyway, my friend KF made a CD out of this recording and created the covers. Many thanks to him.

Here the commercial CD by the artist:

It can be obtained for only 6 Euros here: https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/651233613
At the same Discogs shop can also be obtained other Dhrupad releases from Makar Records:

Could you possibly identify the location of the ghat in the cover photo? It seems to be in Bengal. Perhaps KF might enlighten you on the choice of his cover photo
