The Lost World of Hindustani Music
The Lost World of Hindustani Music
Description
From the Back of the Book:

'Kudrat teri rang-birangee!
Oh many-splendoured Creation!'

So went the bhajan Ustad Abdul Karim Khan sang before the saint Tajuddin Baba. The Holy man entranced by the song, clapped his hands and danced.

Kumar Prasad elegy to a vanishing age of musical giants comprises many such shared experiences between performer and audience between recital and applause. It is his salute to a world receding into the shadows of history peopled by ustads, pandits, the rich and the famous, the sacred and the profane. He traces the origins of their schools from fold traditions to the courts of ancient emperors to the sound of ankle-bells of dancing girls. He points to the time when notation crept into classical music horrifying old masters accustomed to an art form that celebrated spontaneity and improvisation but resulting in the preservation of rages that would otherwise have been lost to time.

While Mukherji's beloved Pandits and Buwas may have been inspired by the divine has recounting from legends and from personal memory shows us those greats as intensely human creatures. Appetites drive them not always noble and their intrigues and jealousies are universal. Humour too abounds in these pages as do character who will remain forever etched in the mind of the reader.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
