Sursagar – “Best of Jagmohan, The” – [EMI (India)]

abacus   8/31/2014   12-inch, International

jagmohan-sursagar

a young Bengali boy refuses to follow in the footsteps of his wealthy, conservative parents; with dreams of a professional singing career he seeks out a guru and under Dilip Babu he flourishes, winning national contests and soon becoming a household name. traditional Indian modes via western strings and active tabla rhythms support his heartfelt songs. vintage recordings hearken back to a country calling for independence, thriving in modern culture but still grasping its cultural roots.
