Malini Awasthi
thumri, dadra, kajri, chaiti, sawan and jhoola

Trained with the inimitable diva of the Banaras gharana, Girija Devi, Malini Awasthi is known for her contribution to semi-classical and folk genres. With an impressive career including singing for films, she has a wide repertoire of forms from regions including Banaras and Awadh, sung in dialects like Awadhi, Bhojpuri and such others.

Her presentation will include a bouquet of semi-classical and folk music compositions like thumri, dadra, kajri, chaiti, sawan, jhoola, etc., created by some noted poets/composers of the Banaras region: Bharatendu, Ramprasad Mishra (Ramuji), Sajile and Chhabile. These compositions are in a dialect known as Kashika, which is spoken in and around Banaras.
