Radha Raman Bhajans - [AUDIO]

The song is a selection from Sri Nikunja Rahasya Stava and Bilvamangal Thakura's Govinda Damodara Stotra. But there is also an opening verse that I couldn't locate. Any one identify it?

This is one of my favorite recordings. I normally don't stray much in my listening habits, preferring simple Bengali bhajans but this is, IMO, an exceptionally beautiful combination of voice, flute, tabla, and, well, bhakti. I won't say anymore other than to suggest playing it while alone and really trying to enter the mood.

I discovered on my last trip to Vrindavan that this is a recording of Venu Gopal Gosvami.

Another track that somehow ended up on the same CD although it is quite different: Radha Raman kirtan (5.6 MB)

Ha. Interesting. What media player(s)? I use Winamp but let me try something else.
braja - Sun, 13 Feb 2005 22:17:02 +0530
Actually the originals may have been ripped in Media Player 10. I'll try rip them in something else...

OK, here are the mp3s:

Govinda

Radha Raman Kirtan

I have seen Venugopal in Vrindavan last November. From my diary:
28 november (2004) Venu Gopal Gosvami gives relief from samsara tapa with a good path in a new lecture room of Jaisingh Ghera. He looks a bit like Srivatsa Gosvami. More than 40 western sisyas attend, they are disciplined and pure, but wear no neckbeads like him by the way. During the mangalacarana of his patha he is accompanied by a whole ensemble with violin, harmonium, sitar etc. They carry the Bhagavata and a deity around the area while chanting Vedic mantras. His patha is long, witty, learned and a bit controversial too.....
