The Music Room

 
Namita Devidayal (Author)
Synopsis When Namita is ten, her mother takes her to Dhondutai, a respected Mumbai music teacher from the great Jaipur Gharana. Dhondutai has dedicated herself to music and her antecedents are rich. She is the only remaining student of the legendary Alladiya Khan, the founder of the gharana and of its most famous singer, the tempestuous songbird, Kesarbai Kerkar. Namita begins to learn singing from Dhondutai, at first reluctantly and then, as the years pass, with growing passion. Dhondutai sees in her a second Kesar, but does Namita have the dedication to give herself up completely to music—or will there always be too many late nights and cigarettes? Beautifully written, full of anecdotes, gossip and legend, The Music Room is perhaps the most intimate book to be written about Indian classical music yet. Author Biography:Namita Devidayal was born in 1968 and graduated from Princeton University. The Music Room, winner of the Vodafone Crossroad Popular Book Award 2007 and named an Outlook book of 2007, is her first book. A journalist with The Times of India, she lives in Mumbai.
