Thaat is one of the most fundamental bases of classification in the Hindustani Classical system. Developed by the learned musicologist Pandit Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande, Thaat offers a frame work to classify several Ragas based on their musical scales.
The Hindustani classical music system thus has ten Thaat-s. Each Thaat is a raga in itself and stands as a proud parent to several ragas that belong to its family.
This album features instrumental renditions of the popular raga belonging to Thaat Asavari and Thaat Marwa by the legends of classical music.
