Gopi Rasik–Gokul temple singer

Archive Item

Shyamdas himself arranged for recordings to be made of his teacher and friend, the late Gopi Rasik Tailang, kirtan singer in Gokulnathji’s temple. These rare treasures are the result of Shyamdas’s ethnographic efforts and foresight.  You can often hear the parrots and other birds in Gokul calling out as the singers sing their own refined lila praises of Shri Krishna.
