Shobha Gurtu, the eternal ‘thumri queen‘ has no peer as far as Thumri and Dadra singing is concerned, except ofcourse Begum Akhtar who was the reigning queen during her time. Here are 4 songs, all big favourites of mine, sung by Shobha Gurtu in full glory :
Mand Thumri – Kesariya Balam : (Download)
Abhogi Dadra – Dekho Guian : (Download)
Ghazal in Bhairavi – Tamanna Aur Kya Hai : (Download)
Khamaj Thumri – Chhabi Dikhla Ja : (Download)
Enjoy listening !!
