Indian Music of the 78rpm Era

(b. c.1917)

List of 78 rpm recordings (c. 1945-50) – KHYAL

[Recordings made by Jay Bharat Recording Co./Columbia]

NOTE: The sound files made available below were not re-published by Columbia, and with the lapse of the Jay Bharat copyright, they remain, as far I can establish, in the public realm. Such music deserves to be heard, again and again. It has – sad to say – languished, buried for decades, in private and public collections. It is made accessible here even though the sound is rough. The interest of the music almost transcends the mere sound – if one can accept that paradox!
