Thumri artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good thumri bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top thumri bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Thumri groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all thumri bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest thumri bands of all time, since the most famous thumri artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best thumri music.

You can click on the thumri band names to see more information about that particular notable thumri group. If they're near the top of the best thumri artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top thumri bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the thumri band names themselves.

This list has everything from Mohammed Rafi to Kishori Amonkar. Rank the best artists by voting for them. Don't like Bhimsen Joshi or Roshan Ara Begum? Give them a thumbs down.

All important, significant and iconic names in thumri music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new thumri bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of thumri, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into thumri music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good thumri bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent thumri bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best thumri bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest thumri musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular thumri bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Share this list with your friends to make sure we get a great list going. (35 items)
