On January 19th 1968, the great Dhrupad singers Ustad Zahiruddin Dagar and Ustad Fayazuddin Dagar gave a private concert at Indorkar’s house in Chembur accompanied by the great Pandit Ravi Bellare. Here is a unique possibility to hear his genius accompanying the Dagar Brothers Junior in three long evening ragas. K. Sridhar plays the tanpura

This concert will be released in 2023 on three separate dates as they did three long ragas that evening. So we have them all on this page with links to the three albums on Apple Music and Spotify that will appear on the dates of the releases.

The concert was concluded by Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar playing a lovely Bhairavi on sitar. That album will be released on November 10.
