Thumri is a short, sweet genre of love song. These tracks by a wide range of artists -- Halim Jaffer Khan, vocal and sitar; Vidyadhar Vyas, vocal; Dhruba Ghosh, sarangi; Rajeev Taranath, sarod; Ajoy Chakrabarty, vocal and Debashish Bhattacharya, guitar -- show equally varied aspects of its flowering. From the scintillating Mand of Vyas, to the incredible filigree of Chakrabarty, to the melting charm of the instrumentalists, these are snapshots of Indian music at its most appealing.
