As thumri moved from the courtesan salon to the Public concert hall, its style and image changed drametically in accordance with the evolving aesthetic of its new bourgeois patrons. Thumri in Historical and stylistic perspectives constitutes a welcome and significant contribution to the study of Hindustani music and south Asian culture in general.
