What is an Urban Thumri?

I owe my vague sounding blog moniker to the OST of the movie Let's Talk.

I have seldom heard rich sonic tapestries like what I heard in that movie.The movie is guilty of making me want to understand and love Indian semi-classical music ( Shudh Hindustani music is a little too heavy for my liking and at this point I also lack the patience, knowledge and hence the capability to discern between a self-indulgent musician's meandering and a soulful heartfelt rendering)

Snippet of music from the movie here and here. Some good notes about the OST here. An interview with the Music Director (Ram Sampath) here (mp3)

Fabulous Soundtrack... Pity I have it on Audio tape and not on CD.
