AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM The Plasticity of Indian Shastra As the Indian mind ... advances westward towards inevitable conquest, it must inevitably carry with it Yoga and Vedanta for its banners wherever it goes. But in order that the victory may not be slow, it is necessary that whatever India has to offer should be stated to the West in language that the West can understand... Europe will accept nothing which is not scientific... Undoubtedly, for practical purposes the West is right....

Indian knowledge possesses such a scientific basis, but ... expressed only in broad principles, compact aphorisms.
The aphoristic method has great advantages. It prevents the mind from getting encrusted in details and fossilizing there It allows a science to remain elastic and full of ever new potentialities for the discoverer. No doubt, it has disadvantages. It leaves much room for inaccuracy ...

For this [reason],
among other more important reasons, the Indian mind has thought it wise to give a firm and absolute authority to the guru...
In Europe, the manual replaces the guru; the mind of the learner is rigidly bound by the written rule and detail not by the more adaptable and flexible word of the guru.

- Sri Aurobindo (The Psychology of Yoga, from his notebook of 1911).

Emani Sankara Sastri Live in Registan Square, Samarkand, Uzbekistan

Contributed by: Valentin
Artist: Emani Sankara Sastri
Year: 1970s
Notes:

Hello,
I'm Valentin, from Bucharest, Romania. I love Indian classical music.

This is a Vynil rip; concert at unknown date; Registan is a famous plazza in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, located between some of the most beautiful medieval Islamic buildings ever built.

There is another recording from supposedly the same concert, named Mohammad Hussain Sarahang - Live in Registan, Samarkand. It seems the 2 recordings came from the same source, have similar quality (pops, clicks), and I believe are from the same concert. Because Mohammad Hussain Sarahang (famous Afghan vocalist) lived between 1924-1983, it means this concert took place before or during 1983.

No additional info (in fact, no info at all) found on the Internet about this concert.

Could be some LPs released in the former USSR, by God knows which obscure recording label.

The tracks name and order might be wrong - I found them without any tag, comments or additional info, and without being enumerated.
- Valentin

A plea to rasikas

One of my cherished goals for putting up this website is to collect and make available online some of those old (pre-1975) concerts by stalwarts which are so precious and rare to obtain. They are all locked up in the private music collections of a few individuals, who are not willing to share them with others for fear of loss.

That's precisely where the Internet helps, isn't it, to house music in an indestructible but widely shareable form?

Hence I request rasikas to come forward and share with me copies of those rare concerts so I can put them online to give everybody an oppurtunity to share the sangItAmR^itaM ! You'll be duly recognized on the website for your contribution. And rest assured that it will not be used for profit.

For starters, I am looking for the following:

I am especially looking for any clear and well-pronounced renditions of rare tyAgarAja kR^itis.

I am NOT interested in hosting contemporary artists' works on my website as there are umpteen other sites for that (e.g., musicindiaonline.com).

If you have anything interesting, please email to sai@cs.utah.edu .

Transfer methods

You can send your collection to me in several ways: I'll put them on my website for everybody's benefit soon after receiving them.
