My intention for this blog is to post information related to Indian Classical music (ICM); specifically, that music which has been recorded from 1903-1993 and distributed on vinyl LPs and audio cassettes and which is in danger of being lost forever as the master tapes slowly disintegrate and/or go missing.
Occasionally there will be links to other websites and blogs featuring articles on ICM, and also information on current recording and touring activities of musicians.
There will be no ads on this blog. I will not receive any income whatsoever for any activities related to this blog, unless I specifically state otherwise. In fact, quite the opposite -- most of these LPs and cassettes have been purchased by me on the international secondary market at current prices (which are surprisingly high in some cases) and any time spent on the blog is time that I am not able to earn money. It is my honor to help this music survive as long as possible!
Thanks very much for your attention!
Good luck for this blog!ReplyDelete

Thank you sir. I feel very lucky to come across your blogReplyDelete
I am totally overwhelmed by the efforts you have taken to painstakingly preserve Indian classical music. Quite sure it has involved an inordinate amount of efforts - not only in sourcing the music, but restoring it as well. I believe people who listen to classical music of any form are slowly decreasing, and the few who do no longer care about listening to it in high fidelity. They are content with the MP3 that YouTube provides. Hats off to you, Sir, for the hard work you have put in, and kudos for your knowledge of Indian classical music.
