Ghumar – Falu


Commencing only with the vocals of singer Falu prior to the instrumentation joining this mid-tempo ethnic track is a real treat, as not only the singer, but the musicians – violinist, harmonium, and percussion – are obviously enjoying the simplicity of the song as the violin rips things up musically. The versatility of the artiste also known as Falguni Shah – who shuffles from traditional classical music to what appears to be world pop music – is her musical upbringing where she has honed Benares thumris, Jaipur music tradition through her study with Kishori Amonkar, and the sounds of the Indore gharana of Ustad Sultan Khan right to taking a tangent towards world music by now living in North America. Falu is undoubtedly a talented vocalist, and one can only visualise that her live performances would provide as much joy to the audience as she has with her singing.
