Lavani is a traditional dance form of Maharashtra with a rich heritage of several centuries, which involves direct interaction between the artistes and the audience. The performer communicates with the audience through her singing, abhinaya and dance. Although lavani has been gaining popularity in the last few years, its portrayal in popular media is limited to being just an item number. Sangeet Bari combines multiple narratives such as the lavani woman, the musicians, the customer and the researcher/narrator. It also includes live performances of old traditional lavanis which are either unknown or forgotten.
