Book Description
About the Book: My Name Is Gauhar Jaan The earliest recordings of Indian music are characterised by the high-pitched announcement, ‘My name is Gauhar Jaan.’ This declaration epitomised a milestone in the history of Indian classical music, one that would forever change its content, structure and style. The musical scene in India at the turn of the 20th century witnessed tumultuous changes. The traditional custodians of the art form, the devadasis in the south, and the nautch girls in the north, who had nurtured the art for centuries, became victims of the morality laws of the British government and the prudery of an ‘enlightened’ Indian elitist class.
