Synopsis

Product Description
Thumri is the predominant light-classical genre of North India. Initially cultivated and practiced by courtesans into the early 20th century, thumri managed a transition to the urban concert hall, shedding its disrepute and acquiring a more classicized sophistication. This selection offers a variety of approaches to the thumri genre, including thumri-style instrumental renderings, a bhajan (devotional song), and, of course, a vocal thumri.
