About the CD

Classical Horis by Dhanashree Pandit Rai

The arrival of spring is a considerable source of joy and world over and in India we herald the spring with the celebration of the festival of Holi in the month of Phagun. We all of course aware of the traditional rejoicing bespattering of color and the scenes of Krishna playing Holi with the Gopis but below the external manifestations of Holi lies a plethora of women’s emotions and deep spiritualism.

The album attempts a journey through the myriad moods of the Naayika as Holi sets in ranging from Shringar, Viraha right up to divine union with the Lord and Master. Most of the compositions are traditional Horis originating from the folk music of the north. The artiste has also taken the liberty to add on verses / dohas and modify some text in certain thumris in keeping with her inner inspiration.

Dhanashree Pandit Rai

Dhanashree is one of the leading exponents of the Thumri genre of music and her popularity owes itself to her rare voice quality that enantes the myriad emotions of thumri Languor delicacy sensuousness earthiness and Pukaar she is aspiring to give thumri its rightful place on the concert stage today since it definitely faces the risk of extinction with the dominance of Khayal.

Dhanashree holds a masters Degree in Hindustani classical Music from University of Bombay. She has trained under the stalwart of the Kirana Gharana Pt. Firoz Dastur and the Thumri legend Shobha Guru.

She ahs also been conducting workshops and lecture demonstrations on all aspects of Hindustani classical music in India and abroad has trained several world renowned Jazz singers in Indian vocal techniques through the JIVI (Jazz India Vocal Institute) and has recorded fusion albums with may of them.
