aprés MISSISSIPPI RECORDS,le label IMPORTANT RECORDS se penche sur le cas Abdul Karim Khan

23 Fév




« Ustad Abdul Karim Khan’s recording of the composition ‘Jamuna ke tir’ in Raga Bhairavi stands as one of the great masterpieces of music. When I first heard the recordings of Abdul Karim Khan I thought that perhaps it would be best if I gave up singing, got a cabin up in the mountains, stocked it with a record player and recordings of Abdul Karim Khan, and just listened for the rest of my life. »
– La Monte Young, 2004

« If there is any real trace of miracle, of phenomena, of wonder, it is the voice. »
– Hazrat Inayat Khan, 1926

More than seventy years since his death in 1937, Ustad Abdul Karim Khan
retains his reputation as one of the greatest singers India ever
produced. Possessed of an elastic, honied voice that poured out like
mercury, he influenced generations of singers including Mohammed Rafi,
Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, and Pandit Pran Nath. Born at the end of the
19th century to a family of musicians that extended back in time for
centuries, his art was formed in the culture of the courts of the
maharajas under British colonialism but was changed by his genius and
imagination and a life marked by sacrifices for love, unsatisfied
ambition, abandonment and heartbreak. These performances were culled
from sessions made during his peak final years 1934-35, newly
transferred and restored and with extensive notes by Ian Nagoski.
