LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE: Essays On Hindustani Film Music
(Rated 5.0)
Description
From the Jacket:

Starting with the premise that Hindustani cine-song and cine-music has been the main narrative, rather than a pleasant diversion for the movie-loving public, the author has undertaken a journey into the enchanting world of singers, musicians, lyrists and assessed their contribution as powerful creators of popular culture as interpreters of the subcontinental ethos, people aspirations and desires, and as bold painters on the canvas of time. They capture the very processesof history and struggles within cultures that have shaped our lives in last one century.

About the Author:

Dr. Ashraf Aziz teaches anatomical sciences at the Howard University, Washington. Hindustani film music and popular culture of South Asia are his major interests. He has been writing extensively on the subject of a long time with rare insight and original interpretation.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
