Music Makers of Bhatkhande College of Hindustani Music (English)

With the decline of the Nawabs in Lucknow, music and dance were confined to professional women artistes. Art became taboo in respectable and cultured families. Pandit Bhatkande's mission to restore the arts to their pristine status and worthiness of devout pursuit inspired a movement to set up music colleges in Lucknow, Gwalior, Baroda and a number of other places.

It is this succession of dedicated and selfless music makers whom Dr. Susheela Misra vividly brings back to life in 20 nostalgic chapters in this book. (only reference copy available)
