Amir Khan – Khamaj

There has been much mention here and there of Amir Khan singing thumris occasionally, privately, and quite well. The ones who possess them mostly cannot part with them for one vow or another of fidelity to some other demigod/collector, and so on – aside from ones posing far more primitive and incredible reasons.

Aftab happened to find one and just brought it here:

Amir Khan – Khamaj

It does not add to or subtract anything from Amir Khan’s reputation, but it surely is a tiny, delightful surprise set free…

He that observeth the wind shall not sow;
and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
[Ecclesiastes 11:4]

  4. Wah kya baat hai!
    What divine piece of music from the great Khan Saheb.
    The purity of bhav and the raga ras of this fine thumri rendition truly makes me want to weep.
    It is indeed very tragic that such great music is a rarity today.
    I thank you whole heartedly for this effort.
