Tansen
Tansen
Description
Tansen, who was a contemporary of the Mughal Emperor Akbar, is the symbol of the supreme achievements of Indian music. He was not only a great performer but he was also a great composer and musicologist. He was a pioneer who opened up new vistas by breaking down the conventions of Jatis and Ragas.

Indian music had no system of notations and therefore there is no way of knowing how a musician of yore performed. If Tansen is still a living influence today, it is because of his original compositions of everlasting appeal like Miyan Ki Malhar, Darbari Kanada and Miyan Ki Todi. Dhrupad which was becoming popular at that time was also enriched by Tansen's genius.

The legends about Tansen's ability to start a fire with his singing of the Raga Deepak or to bring down rains with the Raga Megh Malhar may not bear the scrutiny of science. But they certainly contain the seed of truth about the immense potentialities of music if evoked by one like Tansen.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
