Jugalbandi with Shankar Mahadevan:

Rajasthan Haveli Sangeet came into existence during Invaders/ rulers destroyed temples then resilient population of Shekhawati decided to take the statues from Temple to rich Havelis / Sahukaar and thus started devotional Haveli Sangeet traditions under their patronage in the evenings at private homes that nobody could object.

Pt. Jasraj resurrected this form of music and made it popular. Check the video below
