Anthony Gonsalves passed away on January 18, 2012, in Goa at the age of 84. Go here for my photo essay on him.
On this third anniversary of Ramrang‘s passing, I present video excerpts from a recital given on June 27, 2007, at the Nehru Centre in Bombay. Aneesh Pradhan is on the tabla, Sudhir Nayak accompanies on the harmonium, Ram Shankar offers tanpura and vocal support.

Additional videos of Ramrang are archived at my YouTube channel.
The entire site has now gone mp3. The conversion of all the audio clips from RealAudio to mp3 is complete and the articles have been updated to point to the new sound files. I have done a random verification of the links. Please report back if you come across any broken links or if there are still holdouts that point to the earlier RealAudio files.
The task of porting the Vijaya Parrikar Library on SAWF to this site still remains to be done. Hopefully it’ll get done by the end of this year. We’ll see.
The process of transitioning all the audio clips on this site from the RealAudio format to mp3 has begun. I expect to complete the conversion and the uploads within the next few days. If you notice any dead links, please let me know.
