I am new to this forum. Respectful greetings and salutations to all the fine listeners and musicians present.
A close friend (R Narayanan) has recorded his own alap of Reethi Gowla, at home, on a minirecorder. He is a mano dharma singer, not a professional. The recordings were recently converted to MP3 format.http://auminfinitecosmoses.com/elements/view/951
I request all to kindly listen and offer your knowledgeable comments about it. I am not a very experienced listener, but I did enjoy these. I felt this is an appropriate place to share. The recordings are not the best quality, but perhaps sufficient for an essential listening.
There are also recordings of other ragas, which you will easily find with a few clicks, starting from here:http://auminfinitecosmoses.com/categories/view/4
If you wish to, you may post your comments on the site itself (I would encourage that), or share them here with me.
Please accept my apologies, if this unexpected request from a total stranger feels rude or too forthcoming.
