Here is an audio recording of Utd. Abdul Karim Khansaheb, reviver of the Kirana Gharana (if not founder) singing the very popular "Prem Seva Sharan" Marathi Natyageet based on Raag Bhimpalas.

One of the reasons for Khansaheb's popularity throughout India was his ability to pick up region-specific and culture-specific songs. His ability to render North Indian Ghazals, West Indian Natyageets, and South Indian Bhajans is unparalleled. This recording is a testament to that.

Khansaheb has also sung the popular Natyageet "Nach Sundari Karu Kopa' (based on Raag Jaijaiwanti).

Many of Khansaheb's students started their careers (during and following tutelage) in Natya Sangeet, like Pt. Sawai Gandharva, Smt. Hirabai Badodekar and many others.

Many artists today feel that Marathi Natya Sangeet is a degeneration from the "more advanced" Hindustani Shastriya (Classical) Music.

In this recording, Khansaheb has completely delegitimized that now absurd belief.

Enjoy! : )
