Music Compositions of Bindadin Maharaj

Bindadin Maharaj was a superb dancer and prolific composer and his thumris were ideally suited for bhava-abhinaya in Kathak. Besides their richness in ragas and talas, another outstanding quality of his compositions is the highly mystical, literary and often allegorical word-content, surcharged with Krishna-bhakti or devotion to Krishna, even the Sringara is on a higher spiritual plane.
