Vintage Bhimsen Joshi clip.

     Here is a vintage video clip of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi performing a Komal Rishab Asavari at the Sawai Gandharva of 1975. The performance, no need to mention, is impeccable!
     I am from the generation which was not here when maestros like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Jasraj and Gaansaraswati Kishori Amonkar were at their peak. A video clip like this one gives an idea of what it must have been to listen to them then. The energy and सहजता in the singing is simply awesome!

     When there will be invented a time machine, the first thing i will do is to go back and listen to all the Sawais I've missed...
