Occasionally she sounds a bit hoarse, but that's a minor detail in this soothing recording. I have no idea wether you should perceive Raag Besant Kedar as soothing, but that is how i often find several ragas, taking time to sink into them after stressful days at work and with the family...

Last february we visited Mumbai and I had the opportunity to pay my respects to Rhythm House, the legendary music and film shop that was forced to close its doors after some 60 years in business. I picked up a handful of vintage recordings by a variety of musicians, all on the Meera Music budget label. On them I discovered, among others, Laxmibai Jadhav.
