Ustad Nasir Aminuddin Dagar sings a composition in Chowtal ( 12 beats) in Sawani Barwa.From a concert in Delhi in the1980’s.

It is interesting to compare this with another performance (below) of the same composition in 1991 in Bhopal where he sings a different ornamentation in the beginning and also in other places. Orally transmitted compositions probably mutate a lot in this way.

  1. It is simply heavenly. I am thinking of Ustadji’s performance at our 2 Day Dhrupad Festival in November 1992. We [Surdhwani] organised this festival in Wolverhampton and it was a resounding success. Ustad Nasir Aminuddin Dagar’s style is so soothing and so unique. I can listen to him for hours.
