Rahin Fahimuddin Dagar - Vocals
Laxmi Narayan Pawar - Pakhawaj
" Padma Bhushan Ustad Rahim Fahimuddin Khan's rendition of Raga Kedar opens with two mangalacharan - (i) "Sanandam Nandi Hasta Hatha Murajhara..."; and (ii) "Omkar Panjar Shukim Upanishad..." and then goes on to develop one of the most beautifully conceived Alap, richly laden with all the ornamentation principles which are characteristic of Dagarbani dhrupad. He goes on to sing two compositions in the raga - (i) Dhrupad in Choutaal (12 beat rhythmic cycle): "Bhaja Re Man Vishwanath..."; and (ii) Dhamaar (compositional genre and 14 beat rhythmic cycle): "Maan Taj De E Ho Aali..." ably accompanied by Pandit Laxmi Narayan Pawar on the pakhawaj."
