Pts. Rajan & Sajan Misra - Focus on Thumri

Friday, September 11, 2015
Venue: 
Time: 
7.30pm

 

Pts Rajan and Sajan Misra:  A rare chance to hear Rajan and Sajan Misra exclusively performing THUMRI of the Benaras gharana.

Rajan and Sajan Misra are recognised as India’s finest singers of the North Indian style of Khyal from the esteemed lineage of the Benares Gharana. They studied under their father Pt Hanuman Prasad Misra and their uncle Pt. Gopal Misra. Literally translated as ‘imagination’, khyal is an elaborate and virtuoso style, demanding improvisational flexibility as well as careful attention to notation, phrasing and rhythm. In this concert however they will provide a very rare treat for our London audience by focussing for the first time on THUMRI

 

       

Accompanied on Sarangi by Murad Ali, Tabla by Sanju Sahai and Harmonium by Rekesh Chauhan
