1930 at the Cannon Chapel at Emory University. Treated to an aural feast of Kabir's songs by Dr Krishna Kant Shukla (whose singing emphasized Kumar Gandharva's compositions and style) and Prahlad Singh Tipanya (who led a group of Malwa folk musicians). The latter were more earthy and their performances were more heart-felt. Shukla's singing left much to be desired at times, and even seemed lifeless. But once Tipanya and his men took over, it was wondrous.
