Saawan Ki Thumri

The story of thumri began in the Gangetic plains where the peasant folk heralded the seasons with their hypnotic folk songs. In the latter half of the 18th century the twilight of the Mughal rule these folk songs reached the Mughal courts and what took place was a marvelous transformation… these plaintive songs acquired classical touches polish and ornamentations and what was born was the thumri a rich semi classical form that challenged the popularity of the then existent Khayal thumri was a very rich product of the confluence of two Cultures.

Some of the changes that took place in the Mughla courts were that the lyrics of the folk song were improvised upon the simplistic voice throw of the musically untrained peasant gave way to a rich classically trained voice (riyazi Awaz) some amount of alaapchari was added to it as well as the ada (Expression) harkats like the murki zamzana etc and the occasional Urdu Shers that were throven in. the courtesans of Lucknow were responsible for the dynamic growth and popularity of this sensuous form of music.

In this album we feature the monsoon varieties of thumri like the banwari saawan, Kajri, Jhoola as well as some monsoon theme dedras etc. all examples of the wide variety of folk songs that have acquired classical touches stylization and become richly aesthetic music forms. Very often depicted is the pining nayika who separated from her beloved as the dark clouds gather in the sky but also joyous moments when the sakhis are reveling in the rains and Radha Krishna swinging on the Jhoda in amorous delight.
