Speaking of good singers in ISKCON, has anyone heard of Agnideva das? Apparently he was an extremely popular and good singer?
I have this old tape from Golden Avatar Productions that is SIMPLY FABULOUS
and I used to really love listening to it. It was Tape KT-26 and the bhajans were sung in such a beautiful voice, and I really wanted to find out the name of the singer and if he had recorded any more tapes and stuff. The GAP archive at ISKCON Desire Tree
couldn't help, neither could ISKCON Media
. And although Sit Properly
is in the habit of collecting old ISKCON records and putting them online, they didn't have this particular tape either. I notice that this website must have been updated recently, because now
they have added KT-26 to their list and tells me that it was sung by "Agnideva". (According to that list he also sang Tape KT-23, so that'll be something to look out for.)
With this clue I checked out the online collection of Radio Krishna Centrale
and there is just one
track there by Agnideva: Radha-Krishna Prana Mora
. Amazingly this is the same RKPM song that is on my Tape KT-26. So tantalising, a long search ending in just one song available. In my opinion it is not the best bhajan on the tape, but it is still a good example of how good and emotional Agnideva's voice is.
