Nikhil Banerjee Published Recordings Discography

Chhanda Dhara


Starting in the late 1990s the German label Chhanda Dhara released a series of historical concerts by Nikhil Banerjee. This resulted in a series of previously unreleased live perfomances which rank among the best recordings we have of Nikhilda's concerts. The owners of the label, Bengali couple Gopi and Shefali Nag, retired to India in 2009 and the label closed.

A small number of LPs (later re-released) were also published on this label.
