Country & Eastern 2019

Country & Eastern Newsletter May 2019

Prizes galore for Hjeltamôs!

Per and Bengan won the Grammy for best folk music and were nominated for the Manifest award and now they won the Dalecarlia award for best folk music as well! The album is soon sold out so we are just about to reprint it. Congratulations to Per Gudmundson and Bengan Janson for their wonderful Hjeltamôs album! 

Beches Brew in Gothenburg - twice more

Beches Brew has played at Studio HPKSM in Gothenburg for more than a year now. There are only two Saturdays left before the summer so if you are near don't miss us, the music is growing, growing, growing at Storgatan 22.

Last two concerts on Saturdays May 4 and June 1 at 4 p.m.
During 2019 we join forces with William Soovik and his Grand Finale so there is great music all evening and entrance is free.

Gothenburg & Gothenburg Live
We did two albums last year, the studio recording Gothenburg and a live recording from the club, Gothenburg Live with Gothenburg greats Thomas Gustafsson, Sir Thomas Jäderlund, Göran Klinghagen and Stefan Bellnäs with Staffan Svensson and Viktor Reuter joining us on some tracks. (If you buy the Gothenburg cd you are entitled to a free download of Gothenburg Live)

Last years Dhrupad releases are sensational!

These three unique albums with music from the Dagar family are not to be missed. They were all recorded in 1968 and we released them exactly 50 years later! Apart from the Kalavati album with one of the most beautiful male voices in the music world, young Fariduddin Dagar, there is the album Dhrupad where he sings with his elder brother Zia Mohiuddin before a Maharaja just as it used to be a hundred years ago when they sat with their father Ziauddin before the Maharana of Udaipur. Add to that a friendly battle in the beautiful morning raga Komal Ri Asavari between Farid and Fahimuddin Dagar from a slightly different branch of the family, and you've got three of the most important Dhrupad recordings of all time. These albums are only available in digital format.

Here is a thorough background to Dhrupad and great reviews of our recent releases with the Dagars by prolific music writer Raul da Gama, Dagar Dynasty: The Mysticism of Dagar "Vani" Dhrupad
