Poetic texts from the Vaishnav temples of North India have since centuries been a source of inspiration to several musicians. Performed as part of temple ritual or as concert repertoire by keertankars, dhrupad, khayal or thumri singers, these texts have reached devotees and lay listeners alike. Shubha Mudgal presents on this album verses specifically related to the Indian festival Holi or Hori, the festival of colours. Composed by her, she is joined on this album by Sudhir Nayak (harmonium), Prakash Shejwal (pakhawaj), Aneesh Pradhan (tabla), Shaikh Javed (dholak) and Pratap Rath (additional percussion).
