If there is anything more spectacular about this album is the honesty with which it is sung. The only regret that one may have, is that it ends too soon. The Kabir Project people have been doing Excellent work in this regard. It is not only the bit that it is a rendition of a relatively non-mainstream multi-talented person, who is singing Kabir because of her love for kabir, but even the fact that there is respect for packaging, detailing, graphic design, pricing, marketing and definitely encoding such a product. Credit goes out to all those who have worked so sensitively and proactively on a project such as this, while people like me, just do nothing but sit back and applaud.
Definitely the best track would be "ye tan thaat tambure ka..." you can watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rdR1l9Kcgk

Those of us who studied Hindi in our schooldays recall his dohas with some affection. These brief, two-line poems gave us glimpses into his religious and philosophical beliefs, which we then had to render painstakingly into answers for reference to context questions. What I found delightful about this book and CD package was the rendering of Kabir's bhajans as thumris (sung beautifully!), along with their transcription in Hindi and translation into English, along with Vidya Rao's analyses of the form of thumri and how its very ornamentation intersects with Kabir's poetry, which is rooted in the heat and dust of real life. Yeh tan taat tambure ka is of course beautiful, but the depth of Yeh ghat bheetar really floored me, as did the longing in Saiyan ko laiy avo, where Kabir's verse is amplified with quotes from the poetry of Amir Khusrau and Baba Farid. This is definitely something that needs to be listened to frequently, to be fully appreciated.
