Four Dhuns



Dhuns originate in the songs and melodies of rural India. They are often performed as relaxation pieces at the end of a classical Indian music concert. Although located in a raga framework, the rules for melodic movement are not as strict as in the pure classical approach. They are sometimes described as 'light' or 'semi-classical', yet these imported western terms seem unable to do justice to the profound expression and sensuousness which a great musician such as Chaurasia, drawing on a seemingly inexhaustible well of musical experience, can bring to these tunes.
