Prasar Bharati Central Archives series of Akashvani Sangeet –
Basavraj Rajguru – Vol I – Thumri Raag – Khamaj

He was one singer who got the encomium of ‘Sur ka Badhshah’ from the redoubtable Begum Akhtar.
Rajguru’s variety was infinite: Dhrupad, Dhamar, Khayal, Thumri, Ghazal, Kannada and Marathi stage songs, Vachanas, devotional songs of Haridasas, Keertanas, songs from folk plays and what not.

Rajguru’s voice had a rare range and resilience. It reveled in Taar Saptak. His sargams were boundless. He occasionally bursted into swaraprasthara in the true authentic Carnatic style. You name any embellishment except kharaj, you have it in Basavraj Rajaguru:

Ghaseet, Murki, Meend, Sargam, Boltan.

A sumptuous fare, Rajguru’s singing was eclecticism at its best
