Title Description
Krishna - From the Heart of Benaras

In this first album of the famous Krishna series you hear an artist who is a discovery of Ninaad Music. For the simple reason that at the time of this recording- the first in his life - at the age sixty years, he was not a very familiar name. But today he is among the most sought after vocalists of the country. Pt. Chhannulal Mishra of Benaras has a unique voice and an even more unique style, all his own. The nine compositions in this album consist of various styles like Thumri, Kajri, Jhula, Hori, Badhaiya and a Bhajan as well. However the highlight of the album is a rare Sohar, a traditional song which is sung after childbirth by women in northern India.
