Songs of the famous Duos

This blog completes two years. What started off as a tentative foray into the world of Hindustani Classical Music, and just a topic to start a blog, has become an addiction now. It is scientifically proven that Indian Classical music has healing powers on the human brain and mind. Experiments have been performed to identify different Ragas and the ailment, the cure of which they can be associated with. It has been learnt that a 20-30 minute rendition of Raga Darbari can make you sleep soundly, if you listen to it with full concentration. Now, this surely is a nice way to get a good night's sleep. At least better than popping those bitter pills each night, an escape for many, from the hustle bustle of daily life. What could be better than having Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Bhimsen Joshi, Rashid Khan and the likes of them, singing lullabies to you, and tucking you into bed.

Celebrating two years of indianraga, presented here are four songs from four famous singer duos, each from the pair incomplete without the other. Any individual name in a single duo is difficult to utter without mentioning the name of his partner. Understandably, all are brothers.

Kya baat hai. Nazakat's mellowness perfectly complements Salamat's full voice.
