Dhun is a hybrid form of music, which combines the traditions of
Hindustani classical music
and traditional Bengali music. It is performed in a light manner, avoiding the complexities of the raga in classical music.
Dhun contains an assortment of melodies and is usually performed at a fast pace. This kind of music elevates a listener to an ecstatic mood. Dhun is often performed by classical singers to attract more audience, especially those with less grasp in the discipline of Indian classical music.
