From the CD

Thumri- the song of love, of romance, passion and pining.

Thumri, dadra, kajri, chaiti, jhoola, savani- these are the timeless songs of the lives and love of the Indian folk stylized into a performance genre. Songs which paint the myriad colours of romance, longing, separation and union- under the rain- washed skies, on harvested fields, and swinging jhoolas.

In its most stylized contemporary from, the Thumri developed around dance and abhivaya. Abhinaya has been the soul of Indian dance and theatre from ancient times. In angika abhinaya (anga- body) the body speaks, in Satvika abhinaya, the face registers emotions and in vachika abhinaya, music and words come together as a powerful tool for portraying emotions and dramatic situations.

Thus the music of the Gangetic soil merged with the court dances of Lucknow to give the world an exquisite music genre where vachika abhinaya came to be the soul of performance.

The Thumri genre is multiplex. The bol- banao thumri set on vilambit talas provides the singer an extensive canvas for reposeful improvisation. The pacy bol-bant thumri, popular in Kathak, allows rhythmic play. The dadra is a coquettish song with a metric cadence. The kajri extols the romantic moments of the monsoons and the chaiti the trauma of separation in the post harvest season.

Nirmala Devi was one of the most respected traditional exponents of the Thumri form. She was steeped in the classy Banaras ang of Thumri. However she was also trained in the Patiala gharana and this enabled her create an individual style of her own. She was gifted with a sharp, powerful voice capable of executing superfast taans.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
