Review


"Dhar's remarkable sketches of musicians, both as teachers and performers, provide an animated contrast to the usual fare....This book would be excellent background reading for a survey course on the art music and cultures of India."--Ethnomusicology

Simply, amazing! A lot of deep, insightful views about Indian classical music, together with a great sense of humour and liveliness. Not only for the Indian music lover, but also for anybody who really loves any kind of music.

Format: Paperback
As a teller of tales, Mrs. Dhar shines forth in the same light as possibly W. Somerset Maugham. As a racounteur, her skills are tremendous - the words are like a conversational monologue. The characters are drawn in excellent verbal chiarascuro, in immaculate English, and the humour although quite native, is delighting to all races, I am sure. Her encounters with people have been drawn with remarkable accuracy and the characters come to life with her verbal quill. Kudos on all counts to a great writer and singer, as I remember her myself.
