Can’t sleep? Try some Kumar Gandharva

If you are like the other 99.9% of us… there will be some nights where sleep just wont come… you can follow every relaxation tip, drink warm milk, have a hot shower, count sheep, think of nothing, think of everything and just 10 minutes before your alarm goes off you will feel a little snore, or sleep coming and you have to push it away and get through another day.

For me on those nights where sleep just wont come, I like to settle back and put on some Kumar Gandharva an artist whom I found some years ago, but one who seems to get my eyes rolling and the snores back in business. It doesn’t matter how stressed I am, what sort of a day I have had… 90% of the time I am flying through space and time within 30 minutes of playing some Kumar G.

Raga Shree is my favourite. Don’t fight it, go with the flow and you will be astral traveling in no time 😉

Pandit Kumar Gandharva interprets in his unique style Raga Shree – vilambit khayal in ektala, drut khaal in teentala – in this piece from the Sangeet Sartaj collection which showcases the virtuosity of India’s finest classical vocalists.

A child prodigy who displayed his musical talent at a young age, Kumar Gandharva studied music under the well-known vocalist B R Deodhar.

His is a unique vocal style and he was known also for his refusal to be bound by the tradition of any gharana. The name Kumar Gandharva was given to him when he was a child prodigy; a Gandharva being a musical spirit in Hindu mythology.

His mastery of technique and musical knowledge was so rapid that Gandharva himself was teaching at the school before he had turned 20. By his early 20s, Gandharva was seen as a star of music and was praised by critics.
