Charismatic khyal singer Kishori Amonkar is one of the most famous and important female classical Indian singers. The deeply spiritual diva is regarded as a rebel and avant-gardist in the classical Indian tradition and her creative genius has evolved a unique expressive style of her own, beyond the boundaries of traditional gharanas.

In this performance Kishori Amonkar is accompanied by Purushottam Walawalkar (harmonium), Balkrishna Iyer (tabla), Milind Raikar (violin) and Vidya Bhagwat (vocal support & tanpura). Vol. 1 includes an extensive rendering of the morning raga Alhaiya Bilawal. Vol. 2 is a shorter version of the morning raga Jeevanpuri (better known as Jounpuri), and a bhajan in the popular raga Bhairavi.

Live concert at Kensington Town Hall , London, September 2000.
