Title Review

This book is on the Rampur-Sahaswan gharana of Hindustani music. Beginning with an explanation of the concept of gharanas in Hindustani music, it details the special attributes associated with this gharana. It examines its use of tans; courtly performance of mostly dhrupad, dhamar and alap by the gharana musicians in the bygone days; its multi-raga form, Rag-Sagar; and its special techniques of spinning out the khayal and singing the thumris. The leading representatives of the art in the past era are showcased with details on their lineage, achievements, multi-faceted personality and interests. The volume has useful lists of lineage charts, royal patrons, descendants and disciples of the gharana.
