classical musicians are simply the greatest of Indians.

Sri. Mallikarjun Mansur

Smt. Gangubai Hangal

Sri Basavaraj Rajguru

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi

RAMACHANDRA GUHA writes his experience with these greate musicians of India in The Hindu, one of the leading news papers of India.
He says, "
The classical music of India has given me great joy and solace, although I say this as one who — like Gandhi — does not boast the power of expert or analytical appreciation. As a student in Delhi I was introduced by a mentor to the music of Mallikarjun Mansur. I would hear Mansur on the odd occasion he came to the capital; otherwise, during my summer holidays in Bangalore, I would catch his voice over the crackling airwaves emanating from All India Radio, Dharwad. That station played plenty of Mansur, and also, in a justified spirit of local patriotism, much Hangal and Rajguru as well."
These musicians are gems & legends of Indian music. Read
